Who's the Boss?

Archie, PC 49, is walking a night beat on a cold winter's night in the warehouse district when he hears shots ring out and a large lorry filled with bottles of Scotch for export careens out of a warehouse area and off into the dark night. A vicious gang is stealing trucks filled with goods and selling the goods on the black market, and Scotland Yard is stumped. They cannot discover who the gangsters are, and they have no idea who the big boss is. PC 49 thinks that the usual methods used by the Yard won't get the job done in this case, and he successfully pleads with the Inspector to allow him to go undercover. Archie will assume the identity of a gangster who has been killed and try to find a connection to the notorious gang and become a member of the gang. After weeks of trying, he finally connects to one of the gang members and gets a chance to help them pull off a truck hi-jack job, but something goes terribly wrong . . . The gangster that PC 49 is impersonating had a best buddy named Skinny Ellis, and that guy is part of this smuggling ring, and on the first job that Archie helps them pull off, Skinny jumps into the truck as Archie is pulling away. Skinny Ellis hopes to see his old gangster buddy, but instead of seeing his old friend Skinny sees the Copper and it looks like PC 49 will be discovered and taken care of before he, or we, can discover who the big boss is! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
