Simon has arranged to send a rare mummy of a pharaoh from Cairo to Phildelphia to his good friend, Keystone University archeology professor Horatio Bitts, whose beautiful daughter does not escape The Saint's attention. Ruthless gang leader Duke Bates, known as "The Boss," is a dead ringer for Simon and a notorious jewel smuggler who uses the mummy to disguise a cache of illegal diamonds. After Bates murders a shady jewel cutter and the professor, Simon finds himself under suspicion... even by his old friend, Inspector Fernack. Written by

The speed at which the Saint writes notes bears no relationship to the measured writing on the actual pieces of paper. This is especially noticeable when he scribbles on the top of The Philadelphia Post newspaper with a pencil, whilst the newspaper is unsupported. The next shot shows the paper is perfectly flat on a stable background and the message he writes is neat and even. Although the Saint ends the message, the following shot shows him still finishing writing as he tears off the strip of paper to hand to the paperboy. See more
