Small-time con artist Calvin P. Bream attracts the attention of mobster Miklos Corri when he claims to have a large number of bearer bonds - actually sheets of newspaper. To draw Corri off his trail Bream claims to be only the middle man and, taking a name from the papers at random, cites Randall and Hopkirk. He visits Jeff, pretending to be an American cop but Marty spots the deception. The bizarre thing is that Bream can actually see Marty but only when he is drunk. When Corri holds Jeff a prisoner, and threatens to kill him in order to get at the bonds in a night safe, Marty has to ply Bream with booze to get through to him to call the police.
