Overview
Roger Moore is The Saint - Unmistakable. Unstoppable. Unequalled. "So you're the famous Simon Templar."

Leslie Charteris' 'The Saint' first appeared in the popular 1920s mystery magazines, 'Black Mask', 'Double Detective' and 'Ellery Queen Mystery'. Then came a slew of books before George Sanders donned the halo for a string of B-movies in the 1940s, Vincent Price was the voice of The Saint on the radio and a newspaper strip ran alongside Dick Tracy. But it was Roger Moore who truly immortalized Simon Templar in the 1960s British television series. Now A&E Home Video presents the definitive SAINT, beginning with the 1966-67 season - the first year THE SAINT appeared in color.

Simon Templar. The legendary Saint whose reputation always precedes him. Charismatic, ingenious, charming and utterly elusive. International jet-set buccaneer, The Saint defends against injustice.
