The Saint Takes Over
The Saint Takes Over, released in 1940 by RKO Pictures, was the fifth of eight films in RKO's film series about Simon Templar, also known as "The Saint", the Robin Hood-inspired crimefighter created by Leslie Charteris. George Sanders returned as Templar, fourth time as the Saint. Sanders did one more Saint picture the following year, then abandoned the character for good. Wendy Barrie played his latest romantic interest, in her second of three appearances in the Saint film series (playing a different role each time).
On an ocean liner making its way to New York, Simon Templar (George Sanders), "the Saint", rescues a fellow passenger (Wendy Barrie) from card cheats, though she refuses to give him her name and is offended when he kisses her without invitation. He later sends the mysterious woman a rose corsage by way of apology.
