    The Robin Hood Of Modern CrimeThat was how The Saint was often promoted to entice readers, and it's a theme that his creator Leslie Charteris returns to a number of times in his books and stories. It was the publication of The Saint In New York in 1935 that made Charteris an international name. The film rights were sold even before publication and - despite some problem with the American censors over its violent content - became a hit picture for RKO in 1938. Charteris wanted Ronald Colman, Cary Grant or Douglas Fairbanks Jr for the role of Simon Templar. Instead, after Louis Hayward premiered the character, the much-respected George Sanders took on the role in four of the films, with Hugh Sinclair taking the lead in The Saint's Vacation and The Saint Meets The Tiger.The Saint Meets The Tiger:A man murdered at the Saint's doorstep manages to utter a few words to Simon Templar before he dies, sending him off to the quaint resort village of Baycombe where he confronts crime mastermind 'The Tiger' and his gang as they plan to smuggle gold bullion out of the country.
