    from an amazon market place seller and here is a frame from it with Roger Moore.

    Yes, it was filmed mostly on location in Utah. The credits list it as being in WarnerScope, but that was just Warner's way of using CinemaScope without having to pay 20th Century-Fox a licence fee for using their trade name. It was actually in CinemaScope in all but name. As you say, a pity it wasn't filmed in colour.

    But is it any good? It looks like a proper old-fashioned western.

    Well, the first part and the last part are very good and action packed, but there is a middle section set in a Mexican ranch house that interrupts the flow of the action somewhat. Big Clint Walker is Cheyenne Bodie in all but name, as would be expected, but Roger Moore's put on Irish (or Oirish) accent does tend to come and go and keeps lapsing into his usual English accent. At that time, Warner's were very good at making gangster pictures set in the roaring 20s and Westerns set in the 1880s and were very efficient at it and Gold of the Seven Saints is no exception to the rule. Not a classic Western by any means, but a good, typical feature programmer of the period, meant to keep the cinemas supplied with product in between the more prestigious productions.

    I was in the midst of compiling images for a custom James Bond calendar for my brother (he's turning 37 next week) which I'm printing here , when I came across this beauty:

    Now, the theme for my calendar has switched from cool screen caps too funny comedic images. It's a lot more fun to put together.

    Great image, 2d.
    Jaws/ Richard Kiel was the best Bond villain to me.

    Thanks, I've found a treasure trove of them which is making me think I should switch the theme again. Oh, who am I kidding I'll just make myself a Jaws and Bond one.

    Re: 'This Morning' interview (25th October 2013)

    As expected, someone did upload it to YouTube but I didn't expect the quality to be this poor:

    Mariocki, today's edition of the programme included TV gardener Diarmuid Gavin's visit to Portmeirion. It was the last in his series TV Plots and focused on The Prisoner, of course. I know this will interest you so it's the same as before - repeated on ITV+1 (right now actually) and, for one week only, the ITV Player. And then YouTube? A better recording, hopefully.

    Roger upstaged by posters in 'The Saint' episode The Covetous Headsman (filmed June/July 1962)

    I plan to do something similar at Posters in TV Shows, with co-star Eugene Deckers featuring in other screencaps, but
    thought I'd put together an alternative version for fans as our subject is the main interest. Well he's supposed to be ...


    Simon Templar is at New York's Idlewild International Airport (later John F. Kennedy Airport, following his assassination):



    He's about to follow 'Inspector' Deckers, who has to inform Barbara Shelley that her brother (Peter Brace) has been killed.

    The same posters - in colour :



    Pays Basque, 1958 (Artist - A. Durel); Provence, 1958 (Artist - Jal); BEA - Moscow, 1959 (Photo - Martin H�rlimann).


    The best shot I could find of the Provence poster in the episode, mostly obscured by Roger Moore in the first capture:




    If you don't like the posters, you can still admire Roger. Personally, I think he was at his most attractive in the first episode of The Persuaders!.
