The Saint is asked to act as a bodyguard to the best-selling adventure author Amos Klein and, to his surprise, discovers that Amos is a young woman who uses a male pen-name. They are both captured by a man called Warlock, who has a moll called Galaxy Rose - both names of characters in Klein's books - but they too expect Amos Klein to be a man and are easily fooled when the Saint tells them that he is Amos and the young lady is his secretary. Warlock wants 'Amos' to use 'his' novelist's imagination to break in to Hermetico, a former mine that has been converted into a stronghold for gold and other valuable materials. The Saint plays along but makes a break for it with the authoress. However, despite escaping from the grounds of their prison they are recaptured and told they will be killed unless they cooperate in the break-in. Written by don @ minifie-1

Great episode
10 December 2016 | by lucyrfSee all my reviews

Sylvia Sims is funny and sexy as "Amos Klein", a writer of Alistair Maclean-type thrillers. Simon is hired as her bodyguard, but then they get kidnapped by a gang led by a crazy megalomaniac. So what else is new? There's a twist - this megalomaniac has recreated the world of Klein's books, and he and his gang plan to invade a Fort Knox type storage facility and take off with the bullion, jewels etc. Another twist: they think Simon is Klein and Sylvia is his secretary. There's another lissom young girl (in a lace catsuit) playing Klein's character "Galaxy Rose". Simon (as Klein) is ordered to come up with a way of lifting the loot and avoiding the infrared rays etc etc (invented by that genius Leon Theremin in real life). He has to keep brainstorming with his secretary of course, but they can't think of a scheme. Instead they escape, running across country chased by hounds, mistaken for lunatics and turned over to the kindly "doctors" once more. Klein thinks up a way of getting past the lasers etc, and Simon has to take part in the raid. The episode now becomes a lengthy take-off of Topkapi and endless Bond movies. This is where I fell asleep, then fast-forwarded. It all ends happily. Roger and Sylvia make a lovely couple and RM uses his genuine comedy skills which were much more than a raised eyebrow and a double entendre.
