The plot is similar to The Saint: The Invisible Millionaire
(1963). In fact, it was based on a story by Leslie Charteris
: A millionaire and his assistant (who is romancing the millionaire's wife) are in a car crash; the assistant is killed and the millionaire is badly burned such that his entire face is covered with bandages. He suddenly starts liquidating his estate. The hero reveals that the millionaire was the one killed and that his wife, assistant and physician maintained the illusion that the millionaire was alive long enough to liquidate his estate and make off with the cash.
