In The Sting, a key element lies in the fact that Lonnegan and his people do not realise that Hooker and Kelly are the same person. Why is this?

Questions to consider:

  1. How do Lonnegan's two goons know what Hooker looks like?
  2. How does Salino know what Hooker looks like?
  3. Doesn't Salino pick Hooker/Kelly up from right outside Lonnegan's place? Or, was this Gondorff's man?
  4. How do both these parties locate Hooker?

I realise that the story was set in 1936.
