Saint (The): The Complete Colour Series
Legendary actor Roger Moore (James Bond, The Persuaders!) stars as debonair playboy Simon Templar in the series that made him a global star. Exciting and dashing, and always with an eye for the ladies, Templar travels the world targeting thieves and con-men - fleecing them with a clever combination of his trickery and trademark charm. It’s a dangerous game, but with his suave, panache and devilish good looks, The Saint proves to be one cool customer.
Made in the latter half of the Swinging Sixties and based on the world famous series of bestselling stories by Leslie Charteris, this fourteen-disc set presents the complete run of colour episodes (the original series three and four) alongside some unique and entertaining special features, including the definitive documentary on the making of these colour episodes, featuring contributions from Roger Moore and other members of the team that made The Saint one of the greatest success stories of British television.
Included in this set are all 47 colour episodes, including both the movies and original two-part versions of Vendetta for the Saint and The Fiction Makers (not seen in this format since their original transmission run ended), which feature exceptional performances from guest stars such as Edward Woodward, Francesca Annis, Peter Wyngarde, Barry Morse, Sue Lloyd, Sylvia Syms and Robert Hardy.
