The Saint - the hero of 100 thrilling yarns of breathless adventure and mystery. The Robin Hood of modern crime, the 20th century's gayest buccaneer.
Vincent Price, Tom Conway and Denis Green, in a rare never-before-available audition recording, star as the suave Simon Templar - poised in the presence of ladies, cool when confronted with danger. Well-known to both the criminals and the common man, his services are frequently sought, his involvement quickly detected, and his cases promptly solved.

Yes I would. Specially if they like Vincent Price.
I liked all the great little mysterys on this audio.
Vincent Price was great. I'm so used to him playing a bad guy, it is a change of pace to hear him play a good guy. He does a good job to.
If I had ten hours to spare. Which I didn't.
Great audio, I hope they realise more Saint audios.
"Not what I had expected"
I think if the information available before purchase had made it clear that it was a collection of short (very short) radio shows, with quite a lot of signature tune at the beginning and end of each, this would have helped. I was expecting something that ran on throughout.
I haven't listened to books by Leslie Charteris before.
I'm not sure really how to answer this question, as I only listened to about 15% of it.
It does have a lovely period quality, and I think if someone had edited down the play-out and play-in music it would be fine.
