The entries to the restaurant where inspector Xavier waits for Templar in the beginning and the alley to which Vincente flees are the same - note the placement of the fixed shutter in both scenes. (0:02 and 0:36) Different views of the same spots in the backlot were used quite often in this episode.
This shot looks quite blurred. It looks like it was enlarged. (0:06)
Because of the cut in the middle of the scene Templar walks down the stair twice. (0:09)
Taking into account that hotel rooms can all look the same - but note the position of the building in the view outside - it has the same position and height - therefore the set for Templar's and the Inkler's room is a redress of the other. (0:17 and 0:21)
The (painted) view from the window in the hotel room is the same as in... ...Episode #51 "The Unkind Philantropist". The mountain is the same but notice the different buildings in the front.
Note the the three cuts between the trucks driving by in both scenes - quite possibly they only had one truck for the production and therefore filmed it passing by three times. (0:34 and 0:35)
The background where the car stops is the same in both scenes - if it's not even the same scene. (0:41 and 0:43)
Shape of things to come? The Saint wants to donate the money he gained from the swindlers to UNICEF! (0:47)
