Welcome to Retroville! It's 1962! The Saint opening screenshot
In 1962, The Saint made its television debut. The charming Simon Templar had already been the focus of a modestly successful series of 1940's Hollywood movies.

A modern-day Robin Hood, Simon Templar became one of the flagship characters of Lew Grade's television empire. The series would not appear in colour until 1966 when series star Roger Moore purchased the rights to the show.

The Saint - Roger Moore's Simon Templar with one of the series guest stars
Main Characters:
  • Roger Moore as Simon Templar
  • Ivor Dean as Chief Inspector Claude Eustace Teal

Show Concept:

  • The series focused on the exploits of The Saint--Simon Templar--who was a modern-day Robin Hood. His nemesis, Chief Inspector Claude, helped create the drama around the main character in each clever episode.  The series was the vehicle to stardom for Roger Moore, a former knitting pattern model. When the series ended, Moore took over the cinematic James Bond role from Sean Connery. Moore ended up being the longest-lasting Bond in the series.
