French Traduire


Two anonymous invitations to the Riviera hotel on the French Riviera bring a rich American industrialist Danny Wilde and an English aristocrat Lord Brett Sinclair to meet. Their meeting is unexpected, but planned and well maneuvered by Judge Fulton.

Our two accomplices are first side by side at a red light side and decide to run a race. Brett Sinclair is aboard his famous Aston Martin DBS. It is registered BS1 (in reference to that of the saint - ST1). In episode 6, registration changes (PPP6H). Danny Wilde drives a Ferrari Dino 246 GT. The road separates them at one point, but the two routes lead to the same point that Danny and Brett reach at the same time. Their vehicles immerse themselves in front of the hotel, hood against hood.

Our two characters then enter the hotel and end up fighting and ransacking part of the restaurant. Pattern of this argument: the recipe for a cocktail, cream Creole.

They finally realize that they are at the mercy of their mysterious host. In the past, Judge Fulton had applied the law in certain criminal cases, but some people had still managed to escape it. Now retired, it is resolved to restore the balance between law and justice. The judge therefore decided to call on Danny and Brett to resolve some cases and convinced them to work for him by making them realize that prison was their only other alternative. This is how a new career of adventures and dangers began, for this duo, as "persuaders", the researchers of justice in an unjust world ...

Danny Wilde originated from a poor and hard district of New York (the Bronx), but is now part of high society, after having made a fortune several times. He therefore no longer has any concerns to do for the future. Brett Sinclair on the other hand, is a true British Lord descending from a long line of aristocrats and it shows by his elegance and his manners. He studied in Oxford in England.

The series did not experience the expected success in the U.S.A. that is why it only lasted a season. Tony Curtis loving the voice and the intonation given by his French doubler, Michel Roux, to his character, offered to be his official duplicate in France. Unfortunately for Michel Roux, Tony Curtis no longer replayed for films or serials intended for France!

The beginning of the first episode is the end of the last in the series "Le Saint" interpreted by R. Moore, coincidence? No, the producers just gave a sequel to the car race (by changing the characters).

Tonis Curtis already had a whitening hair, he dyed for the first episodes before finally leaving his hairstyle pepper and salt.

The clothes that Roger Moore has for the role of Lord Brett Sinclair are of himself, moreover in the end credits are written just before the last note (to check;))
