Leslie Charteris The Saint in Trouble I The Imprudent Professor Original Teleplay by Terence Feely Adapted by Graham Weaver 1 Simon Templar pushed away the remains of his lobster and ordered coffee and cognac. He turned his chair sideways to the table and crossed his legs with careful attention to the crease of his trousers. The brightly colored canvas of the awning overhead offered only token protection from the early afternoon sun, and he envied the customers in the restaurant behind him as ...

Leslie Charteris Peter Bloxsom Send for the Saint The Midas Double story by John Kruse based on The Double Take The Pawn Gamble story by Donald James based on The Organisation Man Adapted by Peter Bloxsom Foreword Whatever else may be said about the Saint stories which have been adapted from television scripts, it can at least be safely asserted that they are works of genius. My authority for this statement is that all those which have been published hitherto were written up by Fleming Lee, who ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the Hapsburg Necklace1 I How Simon Templar dined alone, and was introduced to a cat 1 The restaurant of the Hotel Hofer in Vienna was called the Hofburg, presumably after the Imperial Palace of that name not very far from it. It enjoyed a certain autonomy of its own, for it was in a separate building from the hotel, although it could be reached from the latter without going out of doors. It was used as much by the general public as by the guests of the hotel. It ...

Catch the Saint Leslie Charteris1 Foreword The time seems to have come when Simon Templar cannot plausibly go on being contemporary, or else too many literary detectives smarter than Chief Inspector Teal are going to be deducing his present age from the internal evidence of several stories in the Saga that were highly topical at the time they first appeared, and in which the Saint was irrevocably linked with certain historic dates and events. And awkward questions are bound to be asked about ...

The wore important of the two is the Department of Dead Ends, that fascinating bureau of Scotland Yard which has proved Mr. Vickers to be the most brilliant contemporary manipulator of the inverted. detective story. The lesser conception is that of ethereal, saint faced Fidelity ...

The Export Trade by Leslie Charteris Copyright 1933 by Leslie Charteris Veteran readers of the Saint Saga are used to having characters reappear in different stories. This month we are trying the interesting experiment of reprinting two such stories in the same issue, because they really seem to belong together. L.C. It is a notable fact, which might be made the subject of a profound philosophical discourse by anyone with time to spare for ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the People Importers1 Foreword This is another of those joint efforts which I initiated with The Saint on TV, and which were accepted well enough to be followed by three other titles of similarly mixed parentage. In this case, however, there are a few small differences. I first suggested the basic theme to Fleming Lee, who wanted to try his hand at a TV script. He worked out a synopsis, in which I made some suggestions, and which I passed on to the TV producers ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint in Pursuit1 Explanatory Note Readers who have an uneasy feeling that they have read this new book before can relax again. They havent. But they may be recalling the plot of the original comic strip on which it is based, which was syndicated by the New York Herald Tribune between July 17, 1959, and January 7, 1960. Of course, I wrote that, too. L C I: How Simon Templar answered a Summons, and Vicky Kinian was observed. 1 It is a philosophical observation so profound as ...

Leslie Charteris Count on the Saint I The Pastors Problem1 1 The peace-loving, law-abiding residents of Upper Berkeley Mews had long ago become inured to the presence of their celebrated neighbour, though whether his decision to be domiciled amongst them was to be welcomed they had never quite decided. True, he added a certain glamour to that otherwise staid and soporific backwater, but on the other hand there was the ever present threat that he might one day bring his work home with him, so ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the Fiction Makers1 Foreword The history of this book repeats that of The Saint on TV and The Saint Returns. That is, it started life as a television scenario, not written by me, and not based on anything that I created except the character of Simon Templar. After its second draft I was allowed to make some suggestions, not all of which were adopted. However, in this readable adaptation by Fleming Lee who also worked on those other two I have availed myself of the ...

Therefore, to explain it to anyone who may have incredibly missed that epoch-making ops, I cannot do better than repeat the explanatory note with which it was prefaced: When, after many years of noble and lofty-minded resistance, I finally broke down and sold the Saint to the Philistines of Television, I fear that I must have added one more argument to the ...

Like many another eminently simple statements, the foregoing now involves an entirely disproportionate series of explanations. Simon Templar was staying at the Mercurio, which was a long way from attaining the luxurious standards of the kind of hotel that he usually frequented, because when he headed for San ...

Leslie Charteris Thanks to the Saint The bunco artists At this point it may be worth reviewing just once more a field of felony in which Simon Templar won quite a few interesting tourneys in his early years, and in which he exploited most effectively the gift of assuming a pose of fabulous and even fatuous innocence when a situation called for such a disguise which was once partly responsible for getting him nicknamed The Saint. I make my excuses to anyone to whom these routines are already old ...
