Trivia

Simon Templar in the series, differed from that of the books. The character of the original stories had a more hard edge and had no qualms about committing murder. Therefore, as written in the series, Templar had to be made more likable and less inclined to kill. See more »

I loved watching 'The Saint', my Dad did not
25 December 2003 | by mattymatt30See all my reviews

I'm 34, and watched Roger Moore as 'The Saint' shown on Cable TV by a Detroit station when I was in high school. He was cool, sophisticated, worldly (it was set all over the globe), and the shows were just plain entertaining in that classic 60's way. My father, who remembered 'The Saint' when it first aired in the early 60's, thought Roger Moore's Saint was a bit of a dandy and a 'fancy boy'. Why? I asked other men in that age group, here in The Great White North to comment, and got the same answer. A fancy, smart-guy, etc... The Saint was ahead of it's time, and the character was the first 'Metrosexual' in TV history, something that many macho head-game types of that era could not handle. Is my theory right, do some research and comment!
