One Gangster, Two Fiancés and Two Murders
Milton Michael Raison was born in Russia, but his parents emigrated to the U.S. when he was three years old, and he grew up in Now York City. He loved to read books, and one of his favorite authors was Jack London, who wrote great outdoor adventures. The bookworm was a rebellious boy, and after being kicked out of Stuyvesant High School, he lied about his age and was able to get a job as a mess boy onboard an ocean-going steamship.
When he returned to New York City after several years at sea, he turned his love of reading into a love for writing, and at the age of nineteen published a book of poems entitled, “Sea Moods, and Sea Men.” Soon his stories about the oceans and the men that sailed them were being published in all of the famous magazines of the early 1900’s.
After serving in the Marine Corps during the Second World War, he began writing radio scripts, movie scripts, and would later become a famous Emmy winning screenwriter for television shows until his death in 1956.
He wrote this outdoors adventure after his return from World War Two. In many classic movie adventures there is a powerful, unscrupulous female who manipulates her men with lies, deceit and plenty of romantic attention. In this adventure the manipulative lover is a man.
Paul Kelly plays the part of Matt Garraway, a tough fisherman who owns a salmon cannery in the territory of Alaska, which at this time was not yet a state. He manipulates his brother, he manipulates his workers, he manipulates the fisheries inspectors, and more importantly, he will chase and conquer any pretty lady that crosses his path.
In fact, he has promised two women that he will marry them, and all goes well until the two women meet. Fortunately, he is able to con both of his fiancés into believing that each of them is soon going to be his wife, without the other even suspecting. Yes, this man has it all, . . . until the murder. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
