2 TV episodes cobbled together
23 June 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is is a very strange film.Although posing as a feature film it is two episodes of The Saint TV series cobbled together.I am rather more familiar with the RKO series of supporting features.Although made on a lower budget they are clearly have superior production values.Furthermore George Sanders is the epitome of class,Roger Moore is just a big bloke bashing up people.Obviously his audition for James Bond.The story is slow to get going.Furthermore Ian Hendry is a poor villain.Supposed to be Italian American his accent is all over the place.He is very wooden.Finally Currie makes his last screen appearance.
