Ron, I was just as quickly hooked when I started watching the Saint. I had always shyed away from it because I had never liked Roger Moore's smarminess as James Bond. But that same charm works really well as Simon Templar. Plus it's in black and white. And it has that great 1960's ITC feel. Enjoy!Just checking in to say I'm on episode 5 of The Saint. I'm hooked already! I was sort of surprised to see Robert Easton turn up as an American ambassador. He, of course, played Beauregard Short on The Beverly Hillbillies among other "hick" roles. He also had a bit part in the movie adaptation of The Beverly Hillbillies, making him the only actor besides Buddy Ebsen to appear from the series.
