Dancing Aztecs (alternate title: A New York Dance)
A South American republic plans to capitalize on its national symbol, a gold statue of a dancing Aztec priest, by having a sculptor make copies for sale abroad. The sculptor replaces the original with a fake, and ships the real one to New York City for an illicit sale to a museum. The statues are packed in five crates. Asked to pick up crate 'E' at the airport, Jerry Manelli is confused by his client's Spanish accent and takes crate 'A' instead. The statue disappears into the city, leading him on a baffling chase, which - if he comes up with the wrong Aztec - could cost him his life.
