The Persuaders 2007

There is news of a new movie based on The Persuaders television show which starred Roger Moore and Tony Curtis. The original Persuaders TV show was piloted in The Saint episode, "The Ex-King of Diamonds" and featured many of the same co-stars, production teams, and writers as The Saint TV show.

This new movie appears to be coming out in the summer of 2007 and will star Ben Stiller and Steve Coogan as two wealthy playboys from different backgrounds. The original series paired a Texan Oilman with a British Aristocrat. I'm not sure what updating this new Stiller/Coogan vehicle will impart.

Here's a link to another trailer for The Persuaders 2007 movie.

Surfing the Peter Barkworth Connection

The sad news this week that actor Peter Barkworth has passed away at age 77 sent me on surfing on an interesting wave today. Peter was most famous for his British television role of international banker Mark Telford in Telford's Change, however I remembered him from his days with ITC on such shows at The Avengers and Doctor Who. I was also pretty sure that he must have been on The Saint at least once, as there was a lot of cross-over in those heady days of the 1960’s spy shows.

In looking for the Barkworth connection to The Saint on TV, I found an absolutely remarkable site. It features every single actor who played in The Avengers, and sorts them by their connection to other TV shows. In looking at their list for The Saint, I find that Peter did not actually appear in either Return of The Saint, or the Roger Moore Saint... and thus ending my ride. Wipe out!

Saint Site is Stable Again

Thank you to all of you who have been so patient that last few months. This site has been having on-going connection issues for a while, and then on top of that the hosting server started to crash on a regular basis.

I'm happy to announce that www.saint.org is now hosted on a new, faster, and more reliable server that should serve our needs for many years to come. In addition, we have switched our ISP so that our connection to the Internet should be that much more reliable as well.

Cheers, and thank you for your support,

Plea from The Saint!

gee bobg's blog has an interesting article about Vincent Price's public service announcements following some of the Saint radio broadcasts.

Ladies and gentlemen, poison doesn’t always come in bottles. And it isn’t always marked with the skull and crossbones of danger. Poison can take the form of words and phrases and acts: the venom of racial and religious hatred. Here in the United States, perhaps more than ever before, we must learn to recognize the poison of prejudice and to discover the antidote to its dangerous effects. Evidences of racial and religious hatred in our country place a potent weapon in the hands of our enemies, providing them with the ammunition of criticism. Moreover, group hatred menaces the entire fabric of democratic life. As for the antidote: you can fight prejudice, first by recognizing it for what it is, and second by actively accepting or rejecting people on their individual worth, and by speaking up against prejudice and for understanding. Remember, freedom and prejudice can’t exist side by side. If you choose freedom, fight prejudice.

Give The Saint a Volvo!

You can now visit Volvo's site and give a Volvo to The Saint! As noted in Seth Godin's Blog Simon Templar won't actually get a Volvo from your deeds. The idea is just to get you thinking about who in your life deserves a Saintly Volvo. I wonder where the link to the Volvo 1800 is? How about a nice white C70 for the new TV series starring Geoffrey Moore?
