The Hagars (Fritz Weaver and Hazel Court), a married couple, collect money for charity, but keep it for themselves in the form of platinum bars they keep hidden under their pool table.

Second, Phelps has a cover as an ambitious prosecutor on Wayne's trail. Finally, Rollin is ready to take Wayne's place. But once Rollin has made the switch, other mob bosses want "Wayne" to leave the country -- which will ruin the complicated plan.
