Saint, The


First, here are the background facts about the classic American radio production of "The Saint". The first American radio series entitled "The Saint" which aired on NBC from 6 January through 31 March 1945 featured the voice of Edgar Barrier in the role of Simon Templar. From 20 June through 12 September 1945, "The Saint" radio series which aired on CBS featured the voice of Brian Aherne as Simon Templar. Then, from 9 July 1947 through 30 June 1948, Vincent Price could be heard in the role of "The Saint" on CBS. Vincent Price was also heard as "The Saint" from 10 July 1949 though 28 May 1950 on Mutual. "The Saint" aired again on NBC from 11 June 1950 14 October 1951. During this run, Vincent Price retained the role of Simon Templar until 20 May 1950, and thereafter Tom Conway was heard in the role. Another American radio series of "The Saint" is also known to exist with Barry Sullivan as Templar, but no other details are known. (pumamouse)

  1. Loved Roger Moore on television and like Vincent Price on radio, but could never stand Val Kilmer on the big screen. Probably because Hollywood likes to change things when they make a movie about any famous literary character....
