|Nehemiah Persoff as Jeff|
|Mike and Marie plan to kill Luiz|
Luiz finally returns, alone, and tells Jeff that Mike had the money already. It turns out that Mike was planning to kill Luiz and run off with Marie. Mike failed in his goal, however, and Luiz killed him instead. The money fell in the river, but Luiz took care of matters himself. He took Marie to see his friends in the jungle and she saw a headshrinker after all—Luiz unwraps a bundle and out rolls Marie’s shrunken head, the size of an orange.
