The Saint is visiting an archaeological dig in Greece, where his friend, Professor Grant, has unearthed a valuable statue. The workers are catered for by local inn-keeper Stavros and his pretty daughter Sophia. Aristides, Sophia's cousin, then arrives. He is a local boy who has not made good in Athens, where he has become a petty crook. The Saint warns Grant to keep the statue safely locked up, which he does, but Sophia disappears and a ransom note is delivered. Aristides is the obvious suspect but he swears that he is innocent. The Saint however is unconvinced and sets out to expose him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Wow! Two of the Most Handsome Englishman of All Time!
2 September 2013 | by (The Ruins Beneath the Planet of the Apes) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this installment of "The Saint," especially since it contained two of the most handsome British actors of the 1960's -- Roger Moore and the great Oliver Reed. Both actors never looked better, and they are in top form here -- Moore playing the charming yet devilish Templar, and Reed as the duplicitous but sexy bad boy.

Plot centers about an old Greek man and his niece running a bar/hotel outside of Athens. Reed enters as a relative, and becomes embroiled in the theft of an ancient artifact. It's all certainly hokey and labored, but also lots of fun, and some thrills with the sloe-eyed Reed actually dominating the proceedings.
