Simon Templar (aka "The Saint")
In one case— The Saint to the Rescue —a British edition did not appear until nearly two years after the American one. French language books published over 30 years included translated volumes of Charteris originals as well as novelisations of radio scripts from the English-language radio series and comic strip adaptations. Many of these books credited to Charteris were written by others, including Madeleine Michel-Tyl.
Charteris died in Two additional Saint novels appeared around the time of the film starring Val Kilmer : a novelisation of the film which had little connection to the Charteris stories and Capture the Saint , a more faithful work published by The Saint Club and originated by Charteris in Both books were written by Burl Barer, who in the early s published a history of the character in books, radio, and television.
Charteris wrote 14 novels between and the last two co-written , 34 novellas, and 95 short stories featuring Simon Templar. Between and , an additional seven novels and fourteen novellas were written by others. Several radio drama series were produced in North America, Ireland, and Britain. Many early shows were adaptations of published stories, although Charteris wrote several storylines for the series which were novelised as short stories and novellas.

Like The Whistler , the program had an opening whistle theme with footsteps. Price left in May , replaced by , had played Templar on film. The next English-language radio series aired on Springbok Radio in South Africa between and These were fresh adaptations of the original stories and starred Tom Meehan. The English service of South Africa produced another series radio adventures for six months in — Not long after creating The Saint, Charteris began a long association with Hollywood as a screenwriter.
He was successful in getting a major studio, RKO Radio Pictures , interested in a film based on one of his works.
The film was a success and took over the lead role from Hayward and did it for five of those films, while Hugh Sinclair portrayed Templar in the two last. Several of the films were original stories, sometimes based upon outlines by Charteris while others were based loosely on original novels or novellas. This was followed by an unsuccessful French production in In the s Roger Moore , who strongly resembled Louis Hayward in the s, revived the role in a long-running television series The Saint. The series ran from to , and Moore remains the actor most closely identified with the character.
Since Moore, other actors played him in later series, notably bearing the ST1 licence plate. In , six movies were made by Taffner starring Simon Dutton. In , as detailed by Burl Barer in his history of The Saint , plans were announced for a series of motion pictures. Ultimately, however, no such franchise appeared. The Saint starring Val Kilmer was made in but diverged far from the Charteris books, although it did revive Templar's use of aliases.
Kilmer's Saint is unable to defeat a Russian gangster in hand-to-hand combat and is forced to flee; this would have been unthinkable in a Charteris tale. Whereas the original Saint resorted to aliases that had the initials S. This Saint refrained from killing, and even the main villains live to stand trial, whereas Charteris's version had no qualms about taking another life. Kilmer's Saint is presented as a master of disguise, but Charteris's version hardly used the sophisticated ones shown in this film.
The film mirrored aspects of Charteris's own life, notably his origins in the Far East , though not in an orphanage as the film portrayed. Since the Kilmer film, there have been several failed attempts at producing pilots for potential new Saint television series:. On March 13, ,. Former Saint Roger Moore announced on his website that he would be appearing in the new production, which is being produced by his son, Geoffrey Moore, in a small role.
It was announced in December that a third attempt would be made to produce a pilot for a potential TV series. This time, English actor Adam Rayner was cast as Simon Templar and American actress Eliza Dushku as Patricia Holm a character from the novels never before portrayed on television and only once in the films , with Roger Moore producing. Since , numerous films have been produced in the United States , France and Australia based to varying degrees upon The Saint. A few were based, usually loosely, upon Charteris's stories, but most were original.
This is a list of the films featuring Simon Templar and of the actors who played The Saint:. In the s, RKO purchased the rights to produce a film adaptation of Saint Overboard , but no such movie was ever produced. It was never publicly performed, as soon after writing it Charteris decided to focus on non-Saint work. For many years it was thought to be lost; however, two copies are known to exist in private hands, and correspondence relating to the play can be found in the Leslie Charteris Collection at Boston University.
The Saint appeared in a long-running comic strip series starting as a daily strip 27 September with a Sunday added on 20 March the following year. The early strips were written by Leslie Charteris, who had previous experience writing comic strips, having replaced Dashiell Hammett as the writer of the Secret Agent X-9 strip. The original artist was Mike Roy. In , when John Spranger replaced Roy as the artist, he altered The Saint's appearance by depicting him with a beard. Bob Lubbers illustrated The Saint in and The final two years of the strip were drawn by Doug Wildey before it came to an end on 16 September Concurrent with the comic strip, Avon Comics published 12 issues of a The Saint comic book between and some of these stories were reprinted in the s.
The s TV series is unusual in that it is one of the few major programs of its genre that was not adapted as a comic book in the United States. In Sweden , The Saint had a long-running comic book published from to under the title Helgonet. These stories were also later reprinted in other European countries. Two of the main writers were Norman Worker and Donne Avenell; the latter also co-wrote the novels The Saint and the Templar Treasure and the novella collection Count on the Saint , while Worker contributed to the novella collection Catch the Saint.
Charteris also edited or oversaw several magazines that tied in with The Saint. The first of these were anthologies entitled The Saint's Choice that ran for seven issues in — A few years later Charteris launched The Saint Detective Magazine later titled The Saint Mystery Magazine and The Saint Magazine , which ran for issues between and , with a separate British edition that ran just as long but published different material. In most issues of Saint's Choice and the later magazines Charteris included at least one Saint story, usually previously published in one of his books but occasionally original.
In several mids issues, however, he substituted Instead of the Saint , a series of essays on topics of interest to him. The rest of the material in the magazines consisted of novellas and short stories by other mystery writers of the day. An Australian edition was also published for a few years in the s. In Charteris attempted to revive the Saint magazine, but it ran for only three issues. Most Saint books were collections of novellas or short stories, some of which were published individually either in magazines or in smaller paperback form.
Many of the books have also been published under different titles over the years; the titles used here are the more common ones for each book. From to , the Saint books were collaborative works; Charteris acted in an editorial capacity and received front cover author credit, while other authors wrote these stories and were credited inside the book.
These collaborative authors are noted. Sources: Barer and the editions themselves. A number of Saint adventures were published in French over a year period, many of which have yet to be published in English. Many of these stories were ghostwritten by Madeleine Michel-Tyl and credited to Charteris who exercised some editorial control. The French books were generally novelisations of scripts from the radio series, or novels adapted from stories in the American Saint comic strip.
One of the writers who worked on the French series, Fleming Lee, later wrote for the English-language books. Michel-Tyl" -- note the periods and the hyphen. All this confusion in the credits merely reflects the fact that, after Edmond Michel-Tyl's death in , his wife, Madeleine who had previously been collaborating with her husband , took over his duties.
