This entry in RKO's series had the first original story created for a SAINT film without using a Charteris novel as a source. The film works just as well as its predecessors, with Sanders once again helping out hapless police inspector Hale. The story involves a group of race track

gamblers who've been framing Hale. Sanders comes in to help and stumbles across a few murders before wrapping up the case. Guilfoyle is a gang member who goes straight and helps Sanders, while Barrie returns to the series in a minor role as a mob hit-woman. The original script is witty and clever

with some good twists nicely handled by the direction. The supporting cast is good, and Sanders, as usual, is superb.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
