Let's take it easy, brother. You know

you've got a signed contract with us.

And remember I borrowed five grand from the

syndicate to bring you here from Algiers.

I don't care.

Abdullah says good-bye.

But what about the five grand? Say good-bye

to that too. I'm taking the first boat home.

Hey, stupid.

Come on, stupid.

Abdullah walked out on us.

We've gotta get him back.

We'll be in plenty of trouble if that

guy blows town. What guy blows town?

What did you say?

What guy blows town?

How can you talk with

your mouth shut? Well?

Abdullah blew.


Well, what have you

got to say, Jonesy?

Well, uh, if you're talking

about the five grand, boss,

don't worry about that.

I'll get it back to you.

Five grand's small change.

The setup we got for Abdullah

is worth 100 grand.

You wouldn't want us to lose

that kind of dough,

would you, Jonesy?

Oh, I...


Uh, uh, don't, don't give it

a second thought, Frankie.

We'll get Abdullah back if we have to chase

him around the four corners of the globe.

Don't worry about a thing.

Come on, Lou.

Come on.

Excuse me, Bud, do you mind if

I ask you a question? Go ahead.

Just what are we doing here?

We're looking for Abdullah.

We are? Sure. He bought

a ticket for Algiers.

Uh, neighbor, do you know

Abdullah the wrestler?

The wrestler,

Abdullah? The...

Lou, show him a picture.


This is the way he looks

undressed. That's it.

And here's the way

he looks dressed.

He wears the headdress

of the Al-Minya tribe.

Oh, so you know him? Oh,

no, no, no. I-I know nothing.

I want no trouble.

Now go away. Go away, go away!

Oh, he is ugly!

Oh, I wish we could find someone around

here to give us a sensible answer.

So do I.


She's beautiful.

Hey, Bud!

I'll get some sense out of
