    Leslie Charteris guarded the rights to his creation closely, and earlier attempts to televise his stories had come to nothing. Producers Robert S. Baker and Monty Berman were recommended by John Paddy Carstairs, who had befriended the writer whilst directing The Saint in London (1939) (and who would direct "The Saint" (1962) {The Arrow of God (#1.7)} and "The Saint" (1962) {The Romantic Matron (#2.18)} for this run); Lew Grade proposed a budget of £30,000 per filmed episode which also helped convince Charteris that Templar was in safe hands.

    Among the actors offered the role of Simon Templar was Patrick McGoohan. McGoohan turned down the role owing to his disapproval of Simon Templar's womanizing (he also turned down James Bond in Dr. No for much of the same reason).
