Though at least seven actors played The Saint on the radio over
the years, Vincent Price is the Saint to most of us who listened to
The Saint got his name from his initials - ST, for Simon Templar. He was a suave, clever, fun-loving and lovable criminal whose targets were pretty much rich bad guys.
The Saint first appeared in 1928 in a book, moved to the movies in 1938, then to radio in 1940, and finally to television in 1968.
This radio episode, The Corpse Said Ouch, stars Vincent Price and was first aired on August 6, 1950.
