According to theÊDaily MailÊIan Ogilvy was 'the undisputed star of 1970s TV as the dashing Simon Templar inÊReturn Of The Saint'. The show turned him into a household name, causing him to be touted as the next James Bond. From a liberal upbringing in post-war Britain, boarding school escapades and life at RADA, Ogilvy enjoyed an acting career spanning more than fifty years, including TV showÊUpstairs, Downstairsand filmsÊWitchfinder General,ÊNo Sex Please: We're BritishÊandÊDeath Becomes Her. His story plays host to a spectacular all-star cast including Boris Karloff, Hayley Mills, Penelope Keith, Derek Nimmo, Timothy Dalton, Derek Jacobi and Meryl Streep, and Ogilvy gives a vivid account from behind the scenes of the Golden Age of television and film. Once a SaintÊis an amusing and unvarnished story: a tremendously endearing tale from a working actor. His story is modest and endlessly charming, told in such a way that opens a reader's heart to him.
