The Saint Gets A Handicap (1943)

George Sanders returned to the role of Simon Templar in this never finished film entry.  Based on a cocktail napkin, allegedly written by author Leslie Charteris during a weeklong bender at Manhattan's I Can't Cope & Cabana Club, this production was troubled from the start.  Although predating TV's IRONSIDE by over two decades, the idea of the debonair sleuth solving crimes wheelchair bound was unacceptable at the time.  Sanders didn't help matters by later suggesting the character be in an iron lung, thus avoiding to show up on the set.
