Russ A rather entertaining 72 minutes, even if things get a bit muddled toward the conclusion. Miss Gray makes a quite fetching assistant sleuth. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Frances H Even with a young and handsome George Sanders these flicks are just average. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Audience Member sanders makes this B movie series watchable Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Prior to staring in the nearly identical "Falcon" series, George Sanders was the debonair crime fighter "The Saint". This cheapie RKO production is certainly not a high quality affair in either writing or direction, but Sander brings an enormous amount of class to the picture and makes it more than worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member As it is over 70 years old now this is a decent enough little thriller, with George "Sheer Khan" Sanders as the Saint. Fraud, Murder and other acts of skullduggery are rather neatly put together in a film lasting 75 minutes! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
