Simon Templar (The Saint), is a thief for hire, whose latest job to steal the secret process for cold fusion puts him at odds with a traitor bent on toppling the Russian government, as well as the woman who holds its secret.
On May 29, 1991, Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat wrote that Finnish director Renny Harlin had signed a contract with Paramount Pictures to direct the new movie adaptation of The Saint, with Robert Evans producing.
Do you know what the worst part about being you is?
Ivan Tretiak: What.
Simon Templar: Pretending to be so bad in bed.
Ivan Tretiak: You son of the bitch!
The news article given to Simon Templar in the airport lounge is obviously just a headline over a random article gleaned from newspapers from the time. "Dr Russell wins over sceptics" is over an article regarding Harry Handlesman, founder of the Manhatten Loft Corporation.
UK versions are cut by the BBFC with a minor edit to a shot in a nightclub where Tretiak is seen to visibly snort a line of cocaine on a mirror.
