    I've been waiting for these RKO Saint films to be released on dvd since Warner Archive hinted they would a few years ago. There were French and Spanish releases but I was holding out for a US/UK release in the hopes that such a release would include all 9 films(the foreign releases had 8). It's too early to tell whether Warner will release all 9 since they went about it this way, releasing all the George Sanders Saint films first. Hoping the next release includes both Louis Hayward films and both Hugh Sinclair films. The prints are pretty good though "The Saint in Palm Springs" is missing the animated Saint figure opening that is part of "The Saint Takes Over". Looking forward to the next release and hopefully an eventual release of the Sanders/Conway Falcon films.

    The Saint In New York

    Why Isn't The Saint In New York available. Inarguably the best of the RKO Saint pictures. And Hayward clearly the most effective Saint early on.

              Disc 1

              The Saint strikes back:

              The print is quite damaged,really 'average image',black levels were 'good' from time to time,sharp also but the audio track is quite clean and clear'. It's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches and a few bad frame.
              Average but watchable print.

              The Saint in London:

              The print is little better than i expected, but there are lots of white specks, a few bad frames, but the audio track is clear and clean. Decent contrast, relatively sharp 'image', and quite good black.
              Watchable print.

              Disc 2

              The Saint is Double Trouble;

              The print was "ok", still there are lots of white specks, a few bad frames,and the audio track have also little damaged from time to time.
              However good contrast, relatively sharp, and quite good black.
              So very watchable print.

              The Saint takes over;

              The print is quite good, but there are some white specks.The audio track is clear. Decent contrast, relatively sharp 'image', and quite good black.
              Watchable print.

              The Saint in Palm Springs:

              The print is quite good, generally it's a relatively sharp and solid image decent contrast, and good black however it's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches and a few bad frames.
              The audio track is quite good:clear and clean.
              Very watchable print.

              MOVIES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

                It's great to have all 5 of the George Sanders Saint movies in one collection. While it would have been nice for some restoration efforts to have been made on the original film elements, this is a fairly specialized title, and so it is commendable that it was released for classic movie fans at all.

                      This is the replacement set I ordered for the unplayable disks I first received. I had a similar problem with the disks skipping. I was only able to watch one film without an error. It makes me wonder if the entire run is damaged. I'll be sending it back. Much as I would like to have this set to add to my collection, I fear any replacement may also be damaged.

                          George Sanders took over the original "The Saint" movie series from Louis Hayward, starring in five movies. Five plus the original equals six, which would've made a fine two-disc releasse. Instead, they made this a George Sanders-only set, so if you want the first of "The Saint" movies, you have to buy it bundled with "The Saint Strikes Back", which is already included as part of this set.

                                  Warner Bros. spent no money in restoration of this set. The quality is disappointing; yet one is grateful that the films were made available.

                                      I've purchased quite a large number of Warner Archive releases, and this is the first one (that I know) that has been put on DUAL LAYER discs. This is good news for everyone, and hopefully it won't be the last Warner Archive release to use Dual Layer discs. Now bring on the Tom Conway "Falcon" movies! (I'm sure you will...)
