Great addition to the tv series.
29 November 2000 | by Ffolkes-3See all my reviews

This is a great addition to the famous tv series "The Saint" starring Roger Moore. The film was first shown in UK as two episodes of the series, in January 1969; in US it was shown as one tv movie, also in 1969 and later it hit theatres almost in whole Europe. This is one of my favourite films starring Moore at his best. It's got a real solid plot, based on one of the best Leslie Charteris novels. It's full of exciting and engaging situations and also introduces Ian Hendry and a young Steven Berkoff ("Octopussy"). It's a big part of the 1960s television history reminding us of a very characteristic style of film making. This is not only for Roger Moore or the Saint fans but also for all people who are interested in the 1960s culture.
