You can also buy a DVD of a movie (The Saint in Palm Springs) almost based on a story in this book.

The Saint in Palm Springs (RKO 1941).
The film itself was based upon a story by Charteris, however many changes to his concept were made & he sued RKO over it. Charteris later novelised his different version of the film story as the novella "Palm Springs", contained within the collection The Saint Goes West.
George Sanders returned once again as Templar (his final performance in the role), with Jonathan Hale making his final appearance as Inspector Farnack (the character would next be seen in The Saint in Manhattan, a 1980s television pilot). Wendy Barrie makes her third and final appearance in the film series, once again playing a different character. Paul Guilfoyle made a reappearance as Pearly Gates, previously seen in The Saint Takes Over.
The storyline involves The Saint pursuing rare stamps at a Palm Springs, California hotel.
The quality of the recording is fair, considering the age of the original (which is out of copyright). Don't expect HD!

Bonus: Included on the DVD for your entertainment is The Saint in London (RKO, 1939)
This is an American motion picture, the third in a series of films featuring the adventures of Simon Templar, alias "The Saint".
The film starred George Sanders as Templar and was produced by William Sistrom. John Paddy Carstairs directed. Lynn Root and Frank Fenton wrote the screenplay based on Leslie Charteris' short story, "The Million Pound Day", which was published in the 1932 collection The Holy Terror, also known as The Saint vs. Scotland Yard.
According to Saint historian Burl Barer, Charteris considered The Saint in London to be the best of the RKO film series, and it was also a box office success. He believed George Sanders was better suited for the role than Louis Hayward. He admired director Carstairs' work enough to dedicate the book The Saint in the Sun to him; Carstairs is also the only person to direct not only RKO Saint films, but also two episodes of the 1962-69 series The Saint.
