The Double-Double-Crossing Gangster Girl
Actress Luana Walters was the pretty lady that needed rescued in more cowboy adventures in the 1930’s except for Jennifer Holt and possibly Joan Barclay. In 1936, at the age of 24 she married actor Max Hoffman Jr., but when he died in 1945 her world fell apart. She drowned her sorrows in a bottle, and her appearance in this 1947 gangster adventure is one of her final starring roles.
As our adventure opens the cops are chasing a speeding automobile through the dark streets of Chicago ending in a spectacular crash of the speeding auto. When the cops pull up to the crash scene and find three bodies on the ground one of the cops wonders aloud what the District Attorney, his lovely wife and a gangster who recently broke out of prison were doing in the same car.
The wife of the District Attorney is the only survivor, and from her hospital bed she will tell us the story in flashbacks. It turns out that she is the catalyst who is in control. Sure, three gangster organizations are running the city, and they have just framed another gangster and had him sent to prison. Sure, the District Attorney, her husband, is part of the three gangster organizations, helping them stay out of jail and the courtroom. Sure, a nosey newspaper reporter happens to be nearby and gets a whiff of scandal around the District Attorney.
All of the crime in the city is controlled by three gangsters and their best friend, the District Attorney, but it is this little lady, Luana Walters, playing the part of mysterious Marian, who will finally bring down the crime gangs by manipulating one man.
While watching the gangs of the city battle it out, you will enjoy a couple of original boogie-woogie piano masterpieces in one of the nightclubs by the legendary Gene Rodgers, who will play two of his compositions, “Ballad of the Bayou” and “Rajah’s Blues.” Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
