The G-Man from Yale
Slang words are part of the ever evolving language of every peoples . . . . Today we have slang initials . . . BFF . . . LOL . . . and many more that folk a couple of decades ago would never understand. In the 1930’s the American Federal government had a national Bureau of Investigation to investigate crimes and criminals that were bigger in scope and territory than any one city or state could handle.
The Government Investigators quickly became known on the street as G-men. In this gangster adventure G-man Dave Elliott is a Yale educated fellow who chases gangsters, and like many great cops and criminals he thinks he is invincible . . . . Charging ahead and ignoring great danger . . . Sure of his mission and sure of his invincibility . . . Until he gets into a crime bust gone bad. The G-man has followed a gangster in an airplane and successfully gets his man, but instead of basking in the glow of that victory, it becomes the turning point that will be the death of his partner and later may bring his own demise.
The G-man will assume the identity of the dead gangster and deliver a bundle of stolen money to the crime lieutenant under Mr. Big, and hopefully follow the trail to Mr. Big himself. But just as the G-man is trying to arrest the crime Lieutenant, with his partner coming in to help, he partner is shot dead by a henchman in the outer office, and the crime lieutenant gets away.
The G-man is ready to resign because of the mix-up that caused his partners death, but finally decides to push on and try to find Mr. Big . . . . And the henchman that killed his partner. The G-man befriends a numbers runner who is a good old boy with almost a full head of marbles . . . Almost . . . Anyway, the G-man gets into the organization and is on his way to finding out who Mr. Big is when a henchman recognizes his voice . . . The same henchman who killed his partner . . . . The same henchman who is now going to kill the G-Man . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
