Margit Saad is a German actress (originally Lebanese) who has worked largely in German film and television but has also made occasional English-language appearances. She was born in Munich, Bavaria in 1929 and made her screen debut in Eva erbt das Paradies. In 1960 she starred in the British drama film The Criminal and followed it up with appearances in other British films and television programmes such as The Rebel (alongside Tony Hancock) (1961), Playback (1962 film), a film in the Edgar Wallace Mysteries series, The Saint in The Saint Sees It Through (1964) and The Magnificent Two (supporting Morecambe and Wise) (1967).[3][4]

In early 1966, Saad appeared in an episode of the American television espionage series Blue Light. It was edited together with three other episodes later in 1966 to create the American theatrical film I Deal in Danger, which includes her appearance.[5][6]
