The Perfect Crime, and the Perfect Revenge
Sometimes a sucker just can’t get an even break. Joe Rolfe, played by John Payne, delivers flowers to Kansas City florists. He was a hero in World War Two, earning a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his actions during the battle of Iwo Jima, but try buying a cup of coffee with a war medal.
It is 1952, and most of the fighting boys from World War Two are back home making babies that will be known as the ‘Baby Boom’ generation, and creating the great American middle class. Joe has no wife, no girlfriend, and no future. Because of a scrape with the law over a gambling debt, his promising future is gone, and he is a lowly delivery boy for florists.
Unfortunately, because he delivers flowers to a florist shop next to a bank, he will be framed for robbing the bank of more than a million dollars. While the gangsters who robbed the bank are living it up in Mexico, his life is ruined, and even his delivery boy job is gone.
There is only one thing that a man without a future can do, after a mob of gangsters has robbed him of any hope of a successful life. He must find the gangsters and the stolen money to clear his name, or at least get revenge. His journey will take him to Mexico, where he will walk on the dark side of the street to find the men who destroyed his life and would as soon kill him as look at him.
Sometimes a sucker just can’t get an even break, but Joe will get his revenge or die trying. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
