The Beauty Shop Killer

Jane Randolph was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1915 when the city was ablaze with the flames of steel mill blast furnaces. In those days, any strong immigrant man could earn enough money to feed his family by wrestling the hot steel. In those days, Youngstown, like many tough steel towns, had its share of gangsters providing booze and gambling to help the steel workers spend their left-over money.

In this noir gangster adventure Jane Randolph is Clara Calhoun, who owns a beauty parlor, with a bit of gambling in the back room. She has a gangster boyfriend who works for the big boss of the gambling operation, and they decide to fake a robbery and steal the gambling money instead of giving it to the big boss.

Unfortunately, Police Officer O’Hara is walking down the street during the robbery and when Clara’s assistant hair dresser screams, Officer O’Hara fires a shot into the beauty parlor hitting the gangster’s accomplice. The gangster returns fire and kills Officer O’Hara, and leaves with his mortally wounded henchman. Now there is only one thing that Clara and her gangster boyfriend can do to escape the powerful hands of the law, . . . . . They will frame the young boy who usually drives the laundry truck that they stole to commit the crime.

The frame is perfect when hard-boiled hair-dresser Clara swears that she clearly saw the young boy fire the gun that killed the cop. Eye witness identification will keep her in the clear and put the young boy in the gas chamber. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
