When James Bellington enters City Hall with a breadbox-sized package and runs from a lobby policeman, he is apprehended, but the parcel only contains an alarm clock. Bellington is sent to Dr. Glover, a psychiatrist, who labels him a paranoid with homicidal or suicidal tendencies. Bellington delivers two shoeboxes to the art museum, but shows the bomb squad that they only contain art supplies. In a bistro, he tells an undercover policewoman that he plans to bring a dangerous device to the museum. When he arrives with his finger on a button atop a box possibly filled with explosive, police clear the museum. Then Bellington rendezvous with his confederates, art thieves, who have already replaced five paintings with his forgeries. Written by Lew Amack See less
