When Emma is looking through suspect sketches at New Scotland Yard with the two detectives, the female detective says that the suspect is known by many different names, including "Louie" (or "Louis") "Guanella". Emma's response is "Of course... all names of Catholic saints." In the case of "Louie Guanella", this is incorrect. Luigi Guanella was a Catholic priest from Northern Italy, born in 1842 and died in 1912. Guanella was beatified in 1964 but has NOT yet been canonized (made a saint) by the Roman Catholic Church. He is therefore referred to as Blessed Luigi Guanella, not Saint (Luigi) Guanella. See more »
great cast, good plot highly underrated movie classic
This film upon first viewing might not bowl you over as I thought it only o.k however after watching it many times I began to see just how good a movie it really was. Firstly you have fantastic locations which I must admit generally don't draw the out the movie going public out in huge droves but do help the movie in my eyes, then you have the cast, Val kilmer makes a fantastic Simon Templer although I was'nt the biggest fan of the tv series upon which the movie is based so have no basis for comparison, which is probably a good thing as comparing actors again'st other actors who once filled the role can make the viewers decide its going to be awful before even giving it a chance.... to cut a long story short I'll say this..... good plot, great cast especially Val Kilmer pulling off the cool, dark and secretive character he portrays and last of all excellent locations all I can say is view it as a new movie and not a modern remake and see what you think.
