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
The producers of the show went to Jaguar to ask for a free car, in return for the publicity that would follow a successful television series. Jaguar refused, so the producers went to Volvo which was more than happy to risk one P1800S coupe, and the publicity, as it turned out, far outweighed the value of the car. See more »
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!
