Audience Member The Saint author Leslie Charteris has reportedly complained about the film versions of his famous character, so RKO had him write the story for this entry into the series. However, the studio ended up discarding most of his ideas and did something completely different, which Charteris later turned into a book. As it is, the story here has George Sanders as The Sant delivering some rare stamps our west and then gets caught up in murder and intrigue. The story isn't all that special, but Sanders is so suave and cool that he's more than enough to carry the picture. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member another strong entry in this B movie series gets an extra star 4 casting sanders in the title role. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A murder mystery that makes for another decent investigation for the The Saint, albeit not a too exotic location never really getting away from a hotel in Palm Springs.
