The Saint - the hero of a hundred thrilling yarns of breathless adventure and mystery. The Robin Hood of modern crime, the twentieth century's gayest buccaneer.
Vincent Price, Tom Conway and Denis Green, in a rare never-before-available audition recording, star as the suave Simon Templar - poised in the presence of ladies, cool when confronted with danger. Well-known to both the criminals and the common man, his services are frequently sought, his involvement quickly detected, and his cases promptly solved.
In 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes, The Saint keeps company with corpses, amnesiacs, publishers, gamblers, and a monkey. He endeavors to discover secret formulas, recover stolen jewels, prevent poisonings, and otherwise preserve justice on behalf of blondes, boxers, buried girls, brides, and a baby boy!
