When they thus cause the disappearance of Dr. Brian Lefcourt, who practiced Archeology there but owns several newspapers and is engaged with reporter Tawnia Baker, she sends in the A-team, who find it poetical the masquerade as a coffin's escort after springing Murdock -who now claims to be directing 'the' movie- from the lunatic asylum in that very coffin.
