Storyline

The Saint is in the banana republic of San Pablo where a girl called Diane tries to shoot Victor Lawrence, principal advisor to President Alvarez. The Saint whisks her away from the police and she tells him that Lawrence is a fraudster, using an assumed name. He stole money from her father's business and her father was charged, dying in prison. The Saint and Diane join forces with the rebel cell trying to overthrow Alvarez, then the Saint goes to see the president and confronts him with Lawrence's real identity and the fact that he is an opportunist with no political loyalties. Alvarez challenges Lawrence and the two men talk, unaware that the Saint has used a hidden tape recorder to broadcast their conversation to the rebels. Written by don @ minifie-1

Strangely neglected leading lady
5 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The user's summary gives a good précis of this particular episode and my purpose in adding this review is to emphasise the well-constructed plot line in which the Saint and Diane are instrumental in enabling the revolutionaries to succeed in their objective of overthrowing a corrupt regime without recourse to further bloodshed. There are some strong characterisations on BOTH sides of the political fence in this episode. The main drawback of it (common to virtually ALL episodes of 'The Saint' set partly or entirely overseas) is that everyone, from the president of the country downwards, speaks perfect if accented English in what in this case one would imagine to be a Spanish-speaking country. I first watched this as a boy of eleven in the early summer of 1967 and was quite smitten by the delectable Jennie Linden as the Saint's leading lady. Nearly half a century later she looks as stunning as ever and I couldn't understand why she originally received not a SINGLE mention on the now-defunct IMDb message board which discussed the Saint's favourite leading ladies! My own 'top ten' (in no particular order and containing some names not mentioned by other users of the said message board) would be as follows: Eunice Gayson, Dawn Addams, Patricia Haines, Barbara Shelley, Suzanne Lloyd, Jacqueline Ellis, Wanda Ventham, Sue Lloyd, Jennie Linden and Jane Merrow.
