I don't suppose it's an airline, is
Central Intelligence Agency -- C.I.A.
You mean spies and things like that?
Only we call them agents.
We? You mean you're --?
Someone has to do it, Mrs. Lampert --
It's just that I didn't
think people like you were supposed
to admit --
I'm not an agent,
I'm an administrator -- a desk jockey --
trying to run a bureau of overworked
men with under-allocated funds.
Congress seems to think that all a
spy needs --
Yes -- That all he needs is a code
book and a cyanide pill and he's in
What's all this got to do with me,
Your husband was wanted by the U. S.
May I have a sandwich, please?

To be more specific, your husband was wanted

Voss -- Charles Voss.
Mrs. Voss --
-- I'd like you to look at this
photograph here for a moment, please. Tell us if you recognize...
Oh, by the way, have you seen this one?
Scott, Cathy, and Ham, Jr.
Aren't they? All right
Mrs. Voss --
Please stop calling me that. Lampert's the
name on the marriage license.
Oh, I’m terribly sorry. Mrs. Lampert would you look at that photograph and tell me if you recognize anyone please. Just a moment. Have a good
He looks so young -- when was this
1944. Next, please.
The man who was at the funeral
yesterday. A tall man in a corduroy suit.
Does the name Tex Penthollow mean
anything to you?
Would you like some wine?
No, thank you.
The glass and CAMERA move to the third face -- a young GIDEON.
He was there, too -- a
little less hair, but it's the same one.
Do you know him, Mrs.
Lampert? Leopold W. Gideon?
The last one, please.
That's a face you don't forget -- he
was there too!
Herman Scobie. And you've never seen
him before, either?
No, thank heaven.
Mrs. Lampert, I'm very much afraid that you are in a
great deal of danger.
Why should I be in any danger?
You're Charles Voss's wife -- now
that he's dead you're their only
Mr. Bartholomew -- if you're trying
to frighten me you're doing a
Please, do what we ask, Mrs. Lampert --
it's your only chance.
Gladly, but I don't know what you
want! You haven't told me.
Oh, I haven’t? It’s the money -- Mrs.
Lampert -- the money. The $250,000
Charles Voss received from the
auction. Those three men want it,
too -- they want it very badly.
But it's Charles's money, not theirs.
Oh, Mrs. Lampert, I'd love to see
you try and convince them of that.
Then whose is it? His or theirs?
Charles Voss stole two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars from the United States government.
And I'm afraid we want it back.
But I don't have it.
That's impossible, Mrs. Lampert. You're the only
one who could have it.
Mr. Bartholomew -- if I had a quarter
of a million dollars, believe me,
I'd know it.
Nevertheless, Mrs Lampert -- you've
You mean it's just lying around
somewhere -- all that cash?
Or a certified check, a safe deposit key, baggage claim -- you look
for it, Mrs. Lampert -- I'm quite
sure you'll find it.
Look for it! Look
just as hard and as fast as you can.
You may not have a great deal of
time. Those three men know you’ve got the money
just as surely as we do. You won't
be safe until the money's in our
hands. Is that clear?
Now here's where you're to call me --
day or night. It's a direct line to
both my office and my apartment.
And please don't tell anyone about coming
to see us today, it could prove fatal for
them as well as yourself.
As I said, Mrs Lampert -- I'm afraid
you're in a great deal of danger. I regret very much having to say this, please
remember what happened to your husband.
