The Saint 


88 Episodes

The Saint starring Vincent Price 

Crime Detective

Simon Templar, AKA “The Saint” was not a Saint…in fact, the name was the underworld’s sobriquet for this 
 
radio detective, who often did a little bad to get the “goods” on his criminal of choice. The Saint” is a bon 
 
vivant who savours detection as an art form.
 
He’s nothing like his American hard-boiled detectives-in-arms such as Sam Spade, Boston Blackie and Phillip 
 
Marlowe, although closer in spirit is The Fat Man, and closer still, Nero Wolfe. Simon Templar was called “The 
 
Saint” because of his initials: “S.T.”The Chinese-English crime novelist Leslie Charteris wrote over a hundred 
 
Saint adventures. Many “Saint” movies were made, the best starring George Sanders. Tom Conway, who 
 
played The Falcon on the silver screen, was in real life George Saunders brother ! (To prevent confusion on 
 
the part of the public, they tossed a coin to see who would have to change his name. Tom lost, and became 
 
Tom Conway.)When in 1947, The Saint was developed for radio, the first choice was Tom Conway. 
 
He quickly stepped aside, however, and the legendary Vincent Price went on to give the radio public its most 
 
wry dilettante of the demimonde.The Saint’s crime fighting is sophisticated. He’s usually sharp enough to 
 
stick to slinging witty words like arrows, since he’s the “Robin Hood of Modern Crime”, but sometimes thugs 
 
want their slugs. Lawrence Dobkin is “Louie,” the (Brooklyn) Cab Driver, who keeps The Saint streetwise 
 
while getting him across town. A congenial cast of characters is always on hand, or fist, thanks to the witty 
 
scripts. Orchestral music adds to the enjoyment, too, but it’s the singular sound and style of Mr. Vincent 
 
Price that gives The Saint a halo.
