The Saint is caught burgling a house and sentenced to ten years in Princetown Prison - where he is visited by Inspector Teal. However the two men are working together and the Saint is acting as an undercover agent to investigate a spate of recent escapes from the jail. He is approached by an inmate who claims that for £50,000 he can be sprung. Sure enough a helicopter arrives to get him out. Now the Saint must find out who is master-minding the escapes.

Did You Know?


Guest star Donald Sutherland's character and Simon Templar were supposed to be escaping. Stunt coordinator Leslie Crawford came up with the idea to grab the helicopter runner as they were taking off. Roger Moore said in his autobiography that Sutherland threw himself into the role, and started kicking Crawford's fingers as the helicopter was taking off. Moore said, "Les was holding on for dear life and Donald started kicking harder as the helicopter rose higher. I was shouting, "Cut! Cut! Donald, cut!" See more »


The sound heard during the helicopter escape sequence is the wrong sound for the SA-316B Alouette II. Heard is the sound of a piston engine and 2 blade main rotor (such as a Bell 47). The Alouette II has a 3 bladed main rotor and jet turbine engine both of which make a considerable and distinctly different sound., See more »
