The Saint's Vacation (1941)



Reviews and Comments

"Murder." / "Is that all?"

This episode of The Saint stars Hugh Sinclair in the title role, his first of two appearances. Fans of the series are bound to like it -- Simon Templar still has a number of tricks up his sleeve, and it's fun to watch him foil the badguys with his creativity. On the other hand, sometimes the plot gets lazy and lets him get away with too much. At one point the badguys capture someone and demand that he reveal the location of a Maguffin (a term coined by Alfred Hitchcock and used to refer to the thing everyone in the story but no one in the audience cares about), but they never think to search his luggage.
