4.0 out of 5 stars This Knight Is Templar....Simon Templar., 5 Jun. 2010
This review is from: The Saint - The Complete Colour Series [DVD] (DVD)
In Days of Yore the original Knights Templar rode White chargers, to rescue Ladies in distress.
But this 1960's incarnation was called Simon Templar and drove instead, a White sports car. (Volvo P1800)
Most of the stories are thriller based, and not as surreal as The Avengers, or The Prisoner.
But that should not put people off what is shown, as Roger Moore does it so smoothly, and with such charm that you can't help but like the character.
Looking on the, "family friendly" side there is no excessive violence, nor unnecessary rude bits.
(Not that I mind rude bits.)
Overall opinion; a show which can be watched with the whole family.

Trivia:~ The Producers originally approached Jaguar to use one of their cars,(the E-type Jaguar.)
But they turned them down so they approached Volvo, who jumped at the chance.
So it became the Volvo P1800 that symbolized, The Saint's car.
Most of the early episodes are based on stories written by Saint creator Leslie Charteris, the later ones by the individual episode writer.
This is a very good purchase for everyone who likes, "family friendly" thrillers.
The show ran for a total of 118 episodes,71 monochrome and 47 colour. 1962-1969.
There are two things in life of which I'm certain, Connery will always be Bond, and Moore will always be Templar, now cue halo and theme music.
