Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

On-stage from 1922, British leading man Hugh Sinclair made his first important film appearance in the 1935 version of Escape Me Never. Thereafter, Sinclair spent most of his time in the theater, though he continued showing up infrequently but memorably in films until 1953. He played one of the Four Just Men in the 1939 adaptation of the Edgar Wallace suspense novel, and twice played Leslie Charteris' roguish hero Simon Templar (aka the Saint) in The Saint's Vacation (1941) and The Saint Meets the Tiger (1942). One of Hugh Sinclair's better later film roles was Richard Graham in The Rocking Horse Winner (1950).
