Saint's Volvo at Anaheim Auto Show

Bill Krzastek, the owner of one of the Volvo 1800s used in the Roger Moore TV series, The Saint, writes:
Hello and Happy New Year to all of you. It has been a busy end of the year for "ST1". It arrived in Virginia in late September then shipped out to California for a few weeks of fun in the sun! While there, it was displayed on the Volvo stand at the Anaheim Auto Show for the unveiling of Volvo's new C70 Coupe/Convertible.

While in California, Matt Stone, executive editor of Motor Trend Classic, a new high-quality classic car magazine, borrowed "ST1" for an article and photo shoot. I just received an advance copy of the issue (January/February 2006) and it is just superb. The article is seven (7) pages with lots of photographs taken while under power through a tunnel (reminds me of the tunnel at Monaco) and still photos taken in the same warehouse where Clint Eastwood's film "Million Dollar Baby" was filmed. Please pick up a copy as you won't be disappointed. Matt also included a few period shots of "ST1" with Sir Roger Moore in the article as well as a brief history of "The Saint".

The Saint in the 21st Century

Jon Andrew Hildreth writes,

As a long time fan of “The Saint” with a deep fascination in espionage and intrigue, I find myself fantasizing about a post-modern television saintly experience. Here is what I propose. The five season year old ABC hit drama series known as “Alias” created by JJ Abrams will air its last episode in May 2006. However ABC has hinted to a possible series spin off. My concern is that such an enterprise based entirely on a show that was cancelled for poor ratings will give any spin off a snowballs chance in Hell. Since I am also a fan of Alias, I sincerely do not want that to happen. Instead I do want the storyline to develop into something greater than anyone could have ever expected.

The Alias series has a reoccurring villainous character known as Julian Sark played by David Anders. The actor was born in America, but has always spoken on the show with a British accent. His character has been often portrayed as the hired lieutenant to the diabolical masterminds. The masterminds give him there objectives and he executes their wishes precisely. His skills as a spy are phenomenal, and usually anytime where Sark is involved Alias fails to complete her mission. Fortunately, the history of Sark is still shrouded in mystery very much like the Saint. We know that he grew up in England as a supposed orphan. He has a deep respect for all cultures and fine arts. He is very intelligent. It was insinuated for a time that Sark was the legacy of the only surviving member of the Romanoff royal family. Sark eventually meets the man who is supposed to be his father, and allegedly Sark is credited with ordering his father’s assassination. Of course, you can’t take anything for granted in good shows like these. In one of this season’s final episodes, Sark is found working solo. He seems to have softened his mercurial ways, and completely redeems himself as a nefarious character by committing several selfless to the bewilderment of all Alias fans.

Is he suitable for a Saint role?

Here are some interesting links that could persuade you to see the value of the scheme.
