Ladies Never Lie....Much (01-07-51)
As must be apparent from the credits below, whether produced on the East Coast or the West Coast, The Saint attracted some of Radio's finest voice and acting talents. Among the various ensemble members of the cast over the years were Tony Barrett, William Conrad, Betty Lou Gerson, Peter Leeds, Ken Christy, Ted Von Eltz, Larry Dobkin, Sheldon Leonard, Ted Osborne and Louise Arthur. Ken Christy transitioned to each rendition of The Saint over American airwaves in one capacity or another. The Saint made the transition to Television in 1962 with Roger Moore in the starring role. Somewhat more campy than the Radio and Film renditions of The Saint, Moore nevertheless owned the characterization after a couple of seasons. The Television series ran for seven years. The Television incarnation of The Saint employed a great deal of expostion from Roger Moore's Simon Templar, much in the mold of the better film noir and radio noir depictions of sleuths of the 1940s and 1950s.
