Oh, to be in the South of France with the Saint!,

This review is from: The Return Of The Saint - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
My dad enjoyed Roger Moore as the original Saint but I was just a little kid then. I got to watch Ian Ogilvy in the 70s instead -- he's so dreamy and had a great wardrobe! So what if the special effects and fight scenes were obviously faked, you watched the show for the spectacular locations in Monte Carlo, the villas and yachts in Italy, the ski slopes in Switzerland, and even dowdy old London. Some of the episodes were based on real incidents at the time, such as Onassis's son's death in a crash, terrorist bombings in London and Germany, and jewel heists. Sometimes you just need a fantasy break. Have fun!
