Secret of the Second Door Wikipedia
Archibald Chu Sin, owner of the third-rate Hawaiian Regency hotel, and his night clerk, Paul Cummins, try to break up a fight between poker players in a guest's room. Four hoods led by Victor Soretino scare off Archie, while Cummins steals a bag containing $200,000 from an adjoining room. Meanwhile, a battered-looking businessman named Nestro leaves the game after dropping $10,000. Soretino quickly notices the money bag is missing. Assuming Nestro took it with him, he and his gang take over Nestro's home. The psychotic giant Arthur beats Nestro to death when he can't tell Soretino what happened to the money.
Archie Chu Sin tries to hire Tom Lopaka and Hawaiian Eye to guard his hotel, but is laughed off. However, Tom does drive Connie Cummins to the scene of an auto accident which claimed the life of her husband, Paul. Connie is more concerned with a missing item from the car than her husband's death, arousing Tom's suspicions. Connie hires Tom to find the missing money, which she claims Paul won in a poker game. Lopaka learns that Nestro, who owns an Import-Export company, was seen leaving the hotel the day of the game. Tom Lopaka then confronts Soretino at Nestor's home, and confirms that the money was really stolen.
Hiding Connie at the Hawaiian Regency, Lopaka visits Sarge's Place, a rural inn owned by Archie's sister Angelina. Paul Cummins used to stay there on fishing trips, and Lopaka quickly finds where Paul hid the money before his fatal trip. Meegham and Arthur have trailed Lopaka, but he gets the jump on them. He then confronts Soretino and Connie back at the hotel, where Connie shoots Soretino before Tom disarms her.Robert Conrad — Tom Lopaka
