Storyline

The Saint is visited by Joss Hendry, whose fiancee, Brad, disappeared in Mexico, some years earlier, trying to search for the pearls of San Domingo. She has recently heard from Brad to say that he has the pearls and she wants the Saint to go and get them for her. When the Saint eventually meets Brad he finds he has been blinded after a fight and is dependent on the plain but adoring Consuelo, who feeds his delusion that he has actually located valuable pearls. The Saint decides he will help the couple at the expense of the greedy Joss. Written by don @ minifie-1

Unusual - but good
21 June 2013 | by winstonfgSee all my reviews

I have to disagree with kmoh-1 (although I liked his review): I rather liked this episode.

It's a bit slower than most and, unusually, the Saint is really only a bit part in the story until the last 15 minutes or so; but it has some elements of the two Humphrey Bogart "Sierra" movies: greed, avarice, double-cross, disfigurement, pity, caring, and the nature of beauty.

Perhaps a bit much for a one-hour show, but I though it was an honest try - although I have to admit, I could have done without the last 2 minutes of syrupy "summing up".

Perhaps kmoh isn't quite as old as me - I started watching 'the Saint' around 1965 - so what he sees as "sexist" I just see as 1962 (the year this episode came out). Perhaps if he could look past that, he'd see what I did: a nicely-crafted story, well played.

I doubt if he'd say the same if it was a Bogie movie he'd been watching. :-)
