Oriental diplomat Madame Chen is visiting Paris. Her PR officer for this trip is Jeannine Roger whom Templar instantly recognizes as an old acquaintance and former thief. While Jeannine was 'clean' over the last years the precious pearl necklace is very tempting. But other burglars are after the necklace too... including the Saint! But not for his own sake....

* Manning Wilson also appears in Episode #19 "The Work of Art"
* The character of Inspector Quercy appears several times in the series although played almost every time by a different actor.

* There seems to be some confusion about Sylvia Syms' role name - she is called both "Roger" and "Rogers" in this episode.
The set for the hotel is the same as in... ...Episode #51 "The Unkind Philantropist" but there the hotel was located in Puerto Rico. (0:00)
English Actor Peter Elliott was given an Asian look through an epicanthic fold via make-up - the result is not very convincing though. (0:06)
The cars first drive through the backlot from right to left (notice the passage on the right) and then from left to right, this time filmed from that passage. (0:21)
You can see the crew filming the scene mirrored in the car. (0:27)
The name Judith Northwade presented by Seargent Leduc in the list as one of the names used by Jeannine Roger in the past was the name of Julie Christie's role in Episode #15 "Judith". Was it planned that Judith in the earlier episode is the same role as the one played by Sylvia Syms here? (0:42) [Submitted by Wojciech Trojanowski]
