Movie Love - George Sanders as The Saint

image from www.saint.org

I love finding delightful new-to-me classic movies, such as The Saint in London which I stumbled upon one lazy Saturday morning. George Sanders plays Simon Templar in several Saint films, based on the novels by Leslie Charteris. The plot is relatively thin, but handsome chain-smoking reformed criminals afraid of marriage yet ruthless flirts always make for good movie watching.

Unfortunately, Turner Classic Movies doesn't have this lovely gem scheduled to play again. However, you can catch George in his Oscar winning role in All About Eve on June 29th on TCM.
