Trivia

In Germany, the show became a cult phenomenon especially because of the dubbing for which Rainer Brandt was responsible. The style of language developed by him for the dubbing was later known as "Schnodderdeutsch" and became even more popular with the Bud Spencer/Terence Hill comedies from the 1970s. See more »

Quotes

Danny Wilde: You know what really riles me? The fact that we could be outsmarted by a dumb-dumb like Felix. What does he think? He must think he's in some kind of a spy movie, that's what!
Lord Brett Sinclair: "The Spy Who Came In from the Cold." That was a good film. Robert Burton.
Danny Wilde: Benson.
Lord Brett Sinclair: No - *Richard* Burton!
Danny Wilde: No - Benson!
Lord Brett Sinclair: Who's Benson?
Danny Wilde: That's the name of the guy I spoke on the phone with last night. He thought I was Felix! And he mentioned something about contracts.
Lord Brett Sinclair: Ergo, Benson is the publisher.
Danny Wilde: Right, go ahead.
Lord Brett Sinclair: And there ...

Roger Moore And Tony Curtis Excel
14 September 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

I have to admit that Roger Moore is one of my favourite actors. He was brilliant in The Saint and I cannot forget his contribution to the James Bond series. In this show, he excelled again along with Tony Curtis.

Anyone who lived during the era this was made knows what to expect. Fights, women, action, crime etc. Moore as Lord Brett Sinclair and Tony Curtis as Danny Wilde looked like they were having a great time as they had fun with beautiful women and battled the usual stereotypical villains.

Fans of The Saint, The Avengers and similar shows will enjoy this. It's just a shame that this only ran for about 23 episodes.
