Goofs

From the sets and scenery, it must be assumed that the main action of the film takes place in Switzerland. Since Switzerland is on the continent and the film is set in 1941, it seems most unlikely that of the three cars used during filming, two would be right-hand drive. All of mainland Europe drives on the left. See more »

Far better than I had hoped
1 June 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I have seen most of the Saint films and was expecting not to like this one which starred Hugh Sinclair. Why? Well, because the other one he made (THE SAINT MEETS THE TIGER) was a very dull little B-movie--one of the worst, if not the worst, in the series. Also, when I think of the Saint, I still think I prefer the extremely suave George Sanders--who made the role particularly enjoyable. However, here Sinclair seems more in his element and more importantly, he's got a very good script by the series creator, Leslie Charteris. Plus, and I hate to admit it, but Sinclair is actually better than Sanders in a way because he is a much more physical character--more likely to get in a fist fight or other manly pursuits.

The story itself is about a stolen puzzle box and naturally the Saint gets caught up in the affair. While the individual elements aren't always successful, the overall plot is very good and makes for a film that is actually better than some of the American-made versions--even the ones with Sanders.
