The Saint (Sir Roger Moore) is a modern day Robin Hood of sorts. He prevents criminals from succeeding . Where a reward is offered, or the criminals loot is not discovered or "lost", he keeps it to cover his expenses.Simon Templar must always stay one step ahead of the law. Fortunately, his wit, charm, and knowledge of a criminal's ways makes it a fairly easy task.Written by
During the 1960's, there were two imports that represented everything that is sophisticated and elegant in British TV: The Avengers and The Saint. The Saint is not as well known as The Avengers, but it should be. The Saint, Simon Templar, played to perfection by Roger Moore, is the hero of many mystery novels by Leslie Charteris. Roger Moore's Simon Templar is charming, suave, sexy and smart. Simon is less cynical and more caring than James Bond and relies on his wits rather gadgets to get himself out of trouble. He is a semi-reformed thief who uses his burglar skills to outwit rich and powerful evil doers and rescue the innocent. If you have the chance, please see The Saint. If you liked The Avengers, you will not be disappointed.
