Look Behind You, Lady: What a pickup line! Bruce Flemish is getting ready for his magic act at the Hotel China Seas in Macao when the girl sits down next to him at the bar and offers her room number. But this casual meeting is anything but. Donna Van Deerlin is looking for a hero. Her father was killed trying to get information to Hong Kong about a local opium ring. Donna has her father's notes in code. But getting them out of Macao will take courage. Bruce is sure she must have the wrong guy he's just an itinerant magician. But before long Donna is working her magic on him, and Bruce is trying to stay one step ahead of a gang of murderers who want to get their hands on the notes as well. The Venetian Blonde: Skelly stumbles into Venice with a gangster on his tail and his card dealing confidence blown to hell. He feels washed up. That's when he runs into Viola, a young blonde in a black swimsuit sitting at the end of the bar. He can't shake her. And he needs to, because Skelly is in town to hit up his old friend Rinny Jim for some quick cash. Instead he finds Rinny's beautiful wife Maggie, and a very sweet deal--a million-dollar con to bring a rich dame's nephew back from the dead. Now he's got two women after him, and all that sweet green tempting him to one last score. Skelly's problems have only begun.
