Simon Templar (The Saint), is a thief for hire, whose latest job to steal the secret process for cold fusion puts him at odds with a traitor bent on toppling the Russian government, as well as the woman who holds its secret.
Simon Templar has no real family, no real home and Simon Templar isn't even his real name. Yet Simon Templar, also known as the Saint for his use of creating false identities using the names of Catholic saints, is one of the world's most successful thieves. Slick, debonair and a master of disguise, Simon manages to outwit the police again and again. On his next job Simon is hired by the Russian Mafia to steal a cold fusion energy formula from scientist Emma Russel, however the mission backfires as he falls for the pretty, intelligent scientist. Simon and his new love must now manage to outwit the Russian Mafia and work out the energy formula before the worst happens and the US is affected forever. Written by
This film uses the classic 'Saint' theme tune that, though often thought of as starting with the 1960's television show, actually began in the 1930's and 1940's RKO Saint films and appeared in the radio show with Vincent Price. This theme tune, having appeared in numerous post 1960's television adaptations of the Saint, serves as one of the most frequently and longest lasting theme tunes of a media franchise. See more »

I'm glad it stopped bleeding. You don't need stitches. We have to disinfect it though.
You really are an angel.

It's gonna hurt.

Ha ha...! sorry...
[serious, realizing it wasn't funny]
I'm sorry... Are you alright?

This is one of those movies that is strictly for the eye. The soundtrack by Graeme Revell was brilliant, Elizabeth Shue is absolutely stunning. In the apartment scene her eyes shine in diamond hazel colors. It was just a simply movie, decent acting, but there was something about it. It captured an essence, I can't actually describe it, it was actually corny and beautiful at the same time.
