Watch The Saint

This is exciting and popular television show aired from 1962 until 1969. This show was originally a British television show based on the character Simon Templar. Simon Templar is a modern day Robin Hood the only catch is that he keeps the money for himself. He is stealing from the rich criminals and often gets them put away in prison. Simon Templar played by Roger Moore, eventually plays the role of James Bond.

Moore plays the sophisticated Simon Templar. The show transitions from a straightforward mystery series to a more secret agent type show. During the show, The Saint works alone. He is a remarkable adventurer. The nickname the Saint came from his initials ST, the abbreviation for saint. When his character plays an American, he changes his name to Sebastian Tomes, keeping the initials the same.

The Saint was picked up in the United States by NBC, aired over the summer. The show was popular in the United States. The series was cancelled in 1969, but that did not stop it from becoming popular in over 60 other countries. The show started in black and white and eventually moved up to color before it was cancelled.

The show broke some of the traditional ways by letting the character talk to the audience in the beginning of the show. Roger Moore as Simon Templar would look directly into the camera and address the audience. The show progressed and eventually they replaced that with a narrator in the beginning.

Simon Templar has a nemesis, the Chief Inspector Claude Teal. The Chief Inspector looks at him as just a common criminal and tries diligently to catch him. The Saint is always able to keep just one step ahead of the Chief Inspector. To the dismay of the Chief Inspector he is unable to accomplish this and they become tentative allies. The Saint is always able to keep just one step ahead of the Chief Inspector.

This show was so popular that it was revived in 1978 in The Return of the Saint starring Ian Ogilvy as the Saint. Roger Moore was never again The Saint after 1969.

The Saint Full Episode Guide

  • Car rally racing means dangerous bends ahead for the Saint - with a beautiful blonde involved in mysterious happenings.Simon Templar, the Saint (ROGER MOORE), is never happier than when behind the wheel of a powerful car - and he is certainly happy when trying out the rally car designed by George Hapgood (JAMES KERRY) for his engineer- mechanic father (EDDIE BYRNE). But the car crashes, and it's obviously sabotage, which is no surprise to an ice- cool blonde named Kay Collingwood (PATRICIA MINES) who is watching with a young man named Tom Stevens (WILLIAM WILDE).George, frustrated and disillusioned, is prepared to throw his hand in. The design car is a wreck and he doesn't feel that there is time to get the practice car into shape before the impending Rally, though his father wants to do so. It looks as though the way is open for the backer, the wealthy Harold Laker (GEORGE A. COOPER), to sponsor George's cousin, Justin Pritchard (JOHN RONANE), a rival designer, but to Kay Collingwood's annoyance Laker insists that the Saint should be the driver. Somehow, Simon has got to be "dissuaded."Who is Kay? When he realises that she is some?how concerned in the affair, the Saint pursues his inquiries. He mows Kay of old: a highly enterprising young adventuress whose activities encompass anything that is likely to bring a rich reward. Now, it seems, she is tied up with Justin Pritchard, ostensibly as a public relations consultant. And that, Simon guesses, covers every possible effort to give his new car the edge over his cousin's.Tom Stevens is the man doing the dirty work for her, and that includes trying to kill the Saint, though this is something that brings her into conflict with him. Tom accuses her of expecting him to be a magician. She doesn't want Simon hurt, but now she wants Justin Pritchard's car to meet with the same fate as his cousin's. But why? The Saint discovers that there are some very complex and dangero

  • The Saint investigates a racket in which illegal immigrants are smuggled into Britain.A fishing expedition produces an unusual haul for Simon Templar, the Saint (ROGER MOORE), when his boat is almost run down in thick fog and he hears a shot, abody being thrown overboard, and drags a murder victim out of the water.He has sailed into a grim smuggling racket - the illegal importing of immigrants into Britain. The men responsible are Bonner (NEIL HALLETT) and Slater (GARY MILLER).In the local Yacht Club, the Saint drifts into conversation with an attractive girl named Laura (SUSAN TRAVERS), who is waiting for Bonner.When Bonner arrives, he apologises for having to leave Laura to her own devices because of an urgent message, and she accepts the Saint's invitation to drive her up to London.Meanwhile, Bonner is forced to take his latest cargo to London himself because Slater has had trouble with the police and has lost one or two of the Pakistaniimmigrants. As this is happening, the Saint is questioning Laura about her man-friend, and he learns that Bonner is a boat-broker who hasn't sold a boat in months - but still seems to be making money.But Banner is also facing financial problems because he is being blackmailed by Slater. The Saint, more than ever convinced that Bonner has something to do with the shooting he has overheard, follows a trail which leads him to the clearing-house used by Bonner, where he finds a very ill Pakistani named Chaudri (NIK ZARAN), who rejects the Saint's offer to take him to a doctor. Before the Saint can take further action, Chaudri is shot, and when the Saint escapes and returns with a doctor it is discovered (I-) that the Pakistani had smallpox. The hunt is then on for the other Pakistanis who are potential carriers. And Bonner himself is hunting for a lovely model, Nana Gupta (InCGEN HASSALL), who can lead him to her brother Suresh (SALMAAN PEER), who intends to give the authorities details of the illegal "peo
