With his perceived snooty ways and that vaguely sinister air and his awesomely snide but oh-so-elegant delivery of dialogue (man, that rich baritone!), it's a cinch that Englishman George Sanders would land scripts offering him the plum villain role. But, once in a blue moon, the gent did end up playing the heroic lead. Case in point, he starred in several B-flicks in the Falcon franchise. And, before that, he breathed life into the adventurer and amateur sleuth Simon Templar a.k.a. the Saint. Sanders was, hands down, more memorable than Louis Hayward and Hugh Sinclair, the two actors who bookended him in the franchise. This two-disc set, THE GEORGE SANDERS SAINT MOVIES COLLECTION, serves up all five of Sanders' briskly-paced exploits as the Saint, a champion of the underdog and of fair play and who abides by the law when it suits, and goes his own way when it doesn't. And who doesn't love the Saint's signature calling card and that haunting theme song he tends to whistle at the drop of a hat?

- 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.

This set includes all five movies with George Sanders as "the Saint", although you may be forgiven if you've confused some Saint and Falcon movies in your mind. He did three Falcon films later.

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...

Growing up through the 50s & 60s, I was an avid fan of Roger Moore's version of the Saint (as well as the Avengers series), yet when I stumbled across these original Saint features with George Sanders, I could not help but become entranced. To me, Sanders had always played the smarmy, easy to hate bad-guy in all the films I'd seen him, but when he is the playing the good-guy, that "smarm" turns to charm, and he is much more likeable as Simon Templar than even Moore at his pre-bond best. If you enjoy vintage mysteries, serials and detective fiction, you've got to see these Sander's Saint films and I'd also recommend his later venture (with his brother) in the Falcon film series.

FINALLY!, THE GREAT 'CAMPY' MYSTERIES! True Martinis and Movies Material. The Saint series are the initial mystery collection by George Sanders, the self described 'Cad', always with the proverbial Tongue in Cheek. The George Sanders smirk,a trademark gesture of his, is hillarious for those of use that appreciate a bit of cynicism. This collection provides great entertainment as Light 'who dun it' mystery dramas with comedic moments. Acceptable scripts, great character actors, production and several quotable, fun, one-liners. Add gowns by notable Renie, which add the designer-y, fashion aspect.

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.

I was alwaysa fan of the Saint when I was younger, I loved the radio program, the short stories and books, and I really loved the movies. If you have not seen these movies before, the both entertaining and and mysterious. I gave the review 5 stars, but I am prejudice.

As a fan of TCM, George Sanders is one of my classic favorite actors! This set was a great price; and great movies. George is suave with an awesome voice! Next on my list is the 'Falcon' collection; which has his brother Tom Conway in those...looks a lot like his brother. Both great sets of movies! Highly recommend if you like classic cinema!

These discs not as clear or as big a "full frame" as I expected. No fault of the dealer, as was bought in good faith. Plots okay, as seen on TV before, but some bit too dark scenes throughout. Dealer made good and consider Very Reputable and Honest!
