Synopsis

A pre-James Bond Roger Moore plays the urbane, Robin Hood-like Simon Templar, who may skirt the law, but always for a noble cause. Moore's tongue-in-cheek portrayal is perhaps the most familiar depiction of the popular character created by novelist Leslie Charteris. Others cast in the role include Vincent Price (on radio) and George Sanders (in movies). Television revivals of 'The Saint' include CBS's 'Return of the Saint,' with Ian Ogilvy; and six telefilms starring Simon Dutton.
