The Saint in New York

The Saint in New York with Louis Hayward as Simon Templar, aka the Saint.  I was all set to write this one off as just a serial but all day I was trying to tell people about this movie.  The production quality was poor and I had to turn on captioning to make up for the poor audio, but I loved the way Louis Hayward played this character.  He had the jauntiness of Errol Flynn's Robin Hood without any of the honor.  He was always utterly confident and unafraid and several times I was rapt wondering how he was going to get out of some predicament.  This was the first Saint movie and the later ones had a different main actor.  There are plenty of reasons not to like this movie but I was charmed by it.
