That’s T that rhymes with P and this cat is great at pool. He does his business out of a billiards parlor where he holds court like a Sicilian on the day of his daughter’s wedding. Mr. T runs afoul a plot hatched by Chalky and Pete (Ralph Waite & Paul Winfield), a salt and pepper team of criminals who put T on the outs with Big (Julius Harris) and the cops.
