The Kilmer Saint film is available in us on iTunes. It’s on my wish list to buy when there is a price break.

I would buy the film on blu ray for sure too. I really want to see the alternate ending to the film too!

regarding the color on the Roger Moore set, it’s been a while since I’ve watched them. I’ll have to give them a watch. I have the UK dvd set from Network.

thanks for bumping this thread too. I always need a good excuse to watch The Saint! I was watching some of the black and white episodes a few weeks ago. They are on Amazon Prime too.
I think the Kilmer Saint deserves good extras and I think Shout Select would be a good choice to get the title for blu-ray since the original cut of the movie has a climatic sequence cut (plus Elisabeth Shue's character has a different ending than the final version) from the movie and you can see a glimpse of it in the theatrical trailer. This movie deserves a good special edition with many extras on blu-ray

A little off topic, I hope Shout does get the rights to release The Saint movie on blu-ray because it would make a great movie to release as part of their Shout Selects series.

Getting back to topic, I do wish the color masters used for The Saint were a little better and a good remastering to blu-ray would be wonderful for Saint TV show fans
So I ended up watching a bit of the network color Dvd set, the blu ray set which includes one episode of the saint and then I looked at the shout factory website. While the black and white episodes are free on prime the color are indeed locked behind shout tv subscription.


No question the blu ray of ex king of diamonds looks fantastic. I agree with Worth on the color episodes dvd from network. They look a bit rough now. Lots of noise in the picture. Too many episodes on one dvd?

so my ranking is this: Blu Ray (only one episode on the persuaders set), shout factory tv then a distant 3rd is the network dvd.

question for me is whether I will upgrade to the Shout dvd set it if I will wait and hope the rest of the series comes to Blu Ray soon. Paramount’s Chris Pine Saint movie May help with this process too.

thanks all!!!

I rather have Shout Factory license the movie because I think they will do better with the extras than Paramount now. i hope they get the rights since Scream Factory has got the license to release Event Horizon (and recently Escape from LA).

Also I saw all of The Saint episodes are available for streaming through at least the Roku channel (and maybe even Tubi since there is a Shout Factory selection on there).

thanks for the info on Tubi! I created an account.

I may buy the Digital version of The Saint movie shortly using the vudu disc to digital program. $5
