Whereas the fifties in Britain at least, had shows which were loosely based on the expolits of literary characters or heroic exploits fictionalised they developed in part due to the nature of the developments in the commerical television area as well as the increasing technological capability to bring dreams to life.Viewing this, the last volume of Roger Moore's portrayal of Leslie Charteris' fictional modern day Robin Hood with a twist, one is reminded of those early adventure yarns especially the appearance in the Ex-King of Diamonds of the actor who was renowned in children's television at least, by his portrayal of Lamburgher Gessler, the villain in William Tell. Also in the same episode is the actor who played the pilot and his double, Jaques Duvall in the Bond movie Thunderball, opposite the Sean Connery Bond.The last set of the Saint is thankfully the last. The theme music, changed to reflect the televising of the Saint in colour was mutilated even further towards the end and is a horrible transfiguration of the original theme which graced the black and white sets.The Saint, under Roger Moore's watch had a satisfying charm all of it's own. here was the bad guy turned good even though he had an edge and attitude but who could not stand by in the face of injustice. The fact that the show was sustained for seven years was a testimony to the strength of Charteris' original vision and his stories. No simple good versus evil here. There was much more grey in the world after all. The production team, relying for much of the strong shows on the strength of the stable of British television actors who made themselves available for this show including the redoubtable Ivor Dean as the long suffering Chief Inspector Claude Eustace Teale, were a consistent aspect to the shows.The most noticeable feature of this last set is the clear view that the show had run out of ideas after it's lengthy run. The show seems flat and tired with Moore nonchalantly playing his part. Perhaps it was a sign of the times that the old guard was being eclipsed by the newer and refreshing team which brought the Avengers to our screens as well as some of the more adventurous productions such as the Prisoner which elbowed out the Saint or perhaps it was just that the world too was changing with growing affluence among the wider population inculcating changing viewer habits where the charm of the old society that characterised Charteris' books was replaced by the anti-heroes portrayed by Michael Caine, or by the much more realistic and sinsiter Callan so admirably developed by Edward Woodward.Even so this little collection ends on quite a good note, and Moore moved on to take his place in the pantheon of James Bonds. Indeed he had been Flemmings first choice but in the event the final word on who Bond was was established with apparent ease by Connery who made the character his own and who still today is regarded as the epitomy of James Bond 007.All of the Saint stories as portrayed by Moore are a grace to any collection, in my view particluarly the black and white espisodes, and this set too is a must. They sure do not make them like this anymore which in many ways is a shame. A reminder of more gentler times past to contemplate.格安激安,数量限定アウトレット最安価格,代引き不可Saint 7 [DVD] [Import]
