The Saint Double Feature

The Saint's Vacation (1941)      The Saint Meets the Tiger (1943)

Hugh Sinclair stars as Simon Templar in this thrilling double feature of The Saint. In The Saint's Vacation, Templar is puzzled by an innocent-looking music box. Surrounding it is a legacy of robbery, torture and murder. As The Saint explores sinister places in the dead of night, he learns the box contains the key to a valuable code sought by ruthless thieves.

When a crook develops a conscience and tries to expose his cohorts, they murder him at Templar's doorstep in The Saint Meets the Tiger. The Saint trails the mystery to a remote English village where small-town manners cover up a hotbed of intrigue and a bloodthirsty band of gold smugglers.

Comments

Gregory had already reviewed The George Sanders Saint Collection - also from Warner's Archive Collection and this Double Feature has Hugh Sinclair as Simon Templar - finding intrigue at every turn.

This dual-layered, progressive, transfer in the original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and looks very good. There are some frequent speckles but otherwise the image quality is surprisingly strong with impressive black levels. The Saint Meets the Tiger looks marginally superior with some further layered grey tones. The disc supports the film with a fine transfer with plenty of shadows and light play and minimal noise. Thumbs up.

The mono sound is weaker on The Saint's Vacation sounding a bit hollow but neither make the films unwatchable. There are no subtitles offered. There are no supplements at all.

These sly Brit mysteries run just over an hour and are filled with good genre content. The advantage is no wasted filler - we, or rather The Saint, is thrust right into the fray and Hugh Sinclair is a debonair and observant protagonist-gent. Not Noir but some of the crime earmarks are there. I liked them, watched them consecutively, and thought the disc offers pretty good value.
