I didn't expect Carol Cleveland...

Re Sebastian Tombs- by the time Fleming gets to OHMSS, Bond knows that "Universal Exports" has lost credibility as a cover (it's soon replaced by "Transworld Consortium"). Genre awareness!

I like The Saint. It is shown on UK TV every week day. I watch when I am able.

The Man Who Liked Lions is one of my favourite episodes.

He travels all over the world but, apart from a little decoration, all the streets look the same!!!

Despite being filmed in the same studio, it is a great series.

I like Roger Moore films & TV - even AVTAK!

Re: Recommend "The Saint" or not?

I've just watched my second The Saint episode and it occured to me how much the young Roger Moore lools like James Norton, or is it the other way around?

speaking of Python affiliated womenfolk, The Lovely Aimi MacDonald is in Vendetta for the Saint from the final season. She gets rather more lines than Carol Cleveland and delivers them all in her squeaky helium balloon voice.

The way the plot works in Crime of the Century, there's a lot of buildup to Cleveland's appearance. So even though she has few lines the viewer is compelled to study her face and voice closely when she finally appears, thus making me point at my teevee and shout out loud "I know that lady!" long before we get to the credits. To say anymore would be to spoil the plot. But she's doing her American accent, as in the "Scott of the Antarctic" sketch

As a side note, 'Transworld Consortium' is an interesting cover name because it sounds like a company with a modern mission statement for friction-less trade in a globalist world, whereas the worn-out name 'Universal Exports' sounds more like a nostalgic Boris Johnson's strained hopes for a Brexit Britain...

Reading this thread, I'm tempted to snap up all of The Saint,  as I haven't watched any of it for years...

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.
