The Coal Miner, the Gangster’s Girl and the Farmer’s Daughter

Anna Marie Dolan was enrolled in Notre Dame Academy in Hingham, Massachusetts with the goal of becoming a nun. While in school her mother divorced and remarried a man that was a technical expert in the new science of adding color to motion pictures called ‘Technicolor,’ and when he was hired by Tiffany Studios in Hollywood, Anna was exposed to motion pictures. With her natural beauty and her step-fathers help, she became a motion picture actor using the name Anne Nagel.

A couple of years after her new husband committed suicide, she married an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, but was unable to have children because a doctor removing her appendix didn’t stop with just the appendix, without her permission. Three years after suing the doctor, she and her husband divorced.

For the rest of her life Anne Nagel fought a battle with alcohol until she passed at the age of 50 with no living relatives. She is buried in an unmarked grave in Culver City’s Holy Cross Cemetery.

In this crime adventure she is a farmer’s daughter, living outside the city on a broken-down farm. Her father is totally blind, and he believes that his daughter is managing the farm well, but they are dead broke and ready to become homeless.

Meanwhile, in the city, an out-of-work coal miner from Pennsylvania gets mixed up with a gangster’s girlfriend, and with the cops hot on their trail, the coal miner, the gangster’s girlfriend, and two henchmen jump into a getaway car and race out of the city, searching for a place to hide while the cops are looking for them.

Of course, you can see it coming, the gangsters on the run discover the old farmhouse with the blind farmer and his daughter, and it is the perfect place to hide from the cops. No one will ever suspect that they are gangsters on the run. No one except the blind man who can see everything very clearly. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
