- THE SAINT STRIKES BACK (1939)
This rather talky mystery debuts George Sanders as the Saint and co-stars Wendy Barrie in the first of her three appearances in this franchise (although she would play a different character each time). In San Francisco, on New Year's Eve, Simon Templar's busybody bump of curiosity is piqued when a murder takes place in a nightclub. Wendy Barrie plays the hard-boiled femme fatale Val Travers. Daughter of a disgraced policeman, Ms. Travers enlists her own crew of crooks to make it tough on them coppers. But scheming in the shadows lurks an elusive criminal mastermind, if only Templar can be bothered to take a break from his amorous flirtations with Ms. Travers. Based on Leslie Charteris' novel ANGELS OF DOOM.Read more ›
Sadly, the set includes no special features of any kind, and the movies are pretty short: 64, 77, 67, 67, and 66 minutes.
But Sanders is just great as the Saint and like the "Thin Man" movies, you'll enjoy re-watching these periodically just for the witty repartee.
These don't appear to be available elsewhere, and are "out of stock" as I write this in Oct. 2011, so you might want to purchase this item sooner than later.
Now if they'd just come out with a Falcon set...
Update- The image & sound quality is good for the era. I have watched all of these with friends many times now, no complaints. Yes... I would LOVE to see Criterion remaster these, but...
TRIVIA NOTE:In The Saint Strikes Back, The opening scene goes to a New Year's party at a club in San Francisco. The drummer in that band is Gene Krupa, turning out the usual Krupa intense rhythms. Very early recording of him, although only maybe 3 min long.
Krupa also played in Ball of Fire, 1941, Barbara Stanwyk singing Drum Boogie.
