THE SAINT: COMPLETE SERIES

One of the benefits of being away on missions is coming back to check the radar for new discoveries. On the heels of my post yesterday about the new Gerry Anderson Collection box sets, more good news comes from Shout Factory about the return of another out-of-print title. On May 26th Shout will release The Saint: The Complete Series on DVD. The 33-disc region 1 box set will include all original episodes spanning 1962-1969 starring Roger Moore, as well as audio commentary on select shows and a behind-the-scenes with Moore featurette. From the Shout press release: "When sinners strike, call on THE SAINT! Modern-day Robin Hood. Wealthy man of mystery. Debonair rogue. Call Simon Templar what you will, but never cross THE SAINT. A timeless figure of adventure since his creation by Leslie Charteris in 1928, The Saint has thrilled adventure aficionados with his exploits in a variety of media, including novels, movies, and radio—but nowhere was the dashing Mr. Templar more indelibly realized than in his 1960s television series, presented here in one outstanding collection: The Saint- The Complete Series. Starring the perfectly-cast Roger Moore as Simon Templar, The Saint was a benchmark in the lifespan of the character, and a stepping stone to Moore taking on the role of an even more well-known man of action later in his career. Featuring thrilling acts of derring-do, beautiful places (and people), and a sly wit, this complete set of all 118 episodes of The Saint are a heavenly addition to your collection. With guest star appearances by Oliver Reed (Tommy, Gladiator), Academy Award-winning actress Julie Christie (Darling, Doctor Zhivago), Donald Sutherland (The Dirty Dozen), Edward Woodward (TV's "The Equalizer"), a bevy of Bondian beauties (Goldfinger's Honor Blackman and Shirley Eaton, as well as Lois "Miss Moneypenny" Maxwell), and many more. Whether you're a longtime fan or a newcomer to the series, it's time to say "Halo!" to The Saint." Shout has brought back a number of OOP titles, include Gerry Anderson sets, the complete Danger Man/Secret Agent, I Spyand Peter Gunn. The Saint on Amazon here
