The Saturn line of rockets were not only beautiful but one of with a clean record of successful launches.

Beautiful model! It reminds me of the one on display here in Huntsville.

All successful, but I'm not sure I'd say perfectly clean. There were a couple of anomalous engine occurrences, such as the early center engine shutdown on the Apollo 13 S-II stage. Pogo oscillations also plagued both the S-IC and S-II stages throughout the program. Not to say that the Saturn-V wasn't an awesome vehicle, it was; just saying that it wasn't without its warts.

All true anomalies. I was more referring to them all getting of ground and completing their mission unlike the 4 Russian N1 attempts.
