JACQUELINE ELLIS, JEANNE MOODY & ROGER MOORE 'THE SAINT'

Jacqueline Ellis & Roger Moore in The Saint: The Ever-Loving Spouse Year: 1964 Grade: B—

British actress Jacqueline Ellis was a girl-next-door beauty with vulnerability and strength battling for a kind of spoiled girl's spunky attempt to better herself out of dire circumstance, usually of the crime nature as she appeared in several British New Wave Noirs like ACCIDENTAL DEATH and THE HI-JACKERS, and two episodes of THE SAINT...

In THE EVER-LOVING SPOUSE, Jacqueline's busy at a San Fransisco hotel, that's holding a rowdy convention of businessmen where she's teamed-up to blackmail a candy company mogul with a contrived-suggestive photograph she rushed him into, posing in scantily-clad clothes for the snap...

But Ellis is soon replaced by that rich old man's wife in another British blonde also known for the crime genre, and who'd been in three previous episodes... and A MATTER OF CHOICE starlet Jeanne Moody plays a more experienced and sultry kind of dame, with several men wrapped around her ring finger, so it's up to Roger Moore's titular Simon Templar aka THE SAINT to figure things out....

He's temporarily joined by MR ARKADIN star Robert Arden as a gruff, gumshoe style detective, and the culprits mount in a blackmail episode with more initial potential than the somewhat plodding resolution — but it's great seeing these two obscure beauties despite never sharing the screen together, each with their own separate agenda.
