One of the Weaker Episodes
17 December 2008 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

One of the weakest episodes of the series. The producers of this type of show were convinced that 1960's viewers got off on faked exotic locations and dumpy blonde's; this episodes suffers from both. Unfortunately neither the story nor the guest stars are top shelf so Moore has to carry things, with a bit of comic relief help from his Italian sidekick Taxi driver (played by Warren Mitchell).

The Saint is knocked out in Rome during the kidnapping of a dumpy blonde.

It turns out that she is the daughter of a United States Governor, who is visiting Rome as part of a trade commission. The kidnapper turns out to be the older brother of a death row prisoner back in the Governor's home state. and instead of a ransom he wants a reprieve for his murderer brother. The title comes from Simon's clever use of the Latin language to pass along a clue.

The only notable thing is an appearance by character actor Robert Easton, playing an American embassy official. Unfortunately it is a straight role without his trademark drawl.
