One Girl, Two Guys . . . and One Gun

George Raft was born in 1901 in the meanest, toughest neighborhood in the world . . . Hell's Kitchen New York City. He learned to be tough and later in Hollywood it was probably very easy to act tough . . . Like all of the folk he grew up around. In Hollywood he quickly became famous for his portrayal of gangsters. Unfortunately rumors of his friendship with some of the real-life gangsters from his neighborhood and some of the most famous mobsters of his day probably hurt his career. In 1966 he wanted to visit England but was not given a visa because of his mob connections. He didn't seem to have great luck at picking the movies he was in also. He was offered the lead in The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca but turned them down, and a fellow named Humphrey Bogart got the parts instead. In this story he is small-town boy Kenny who grew up loving Mary, played by Ava Gardner. Now he is a middle aged man without a job who shares his anger at life with everyone around him. As the story opens Mary comes back to town wanting to settle down to the simple small-town life and wants to do it with Kenny. Kenny's anger at life and his lack of direction and purpose will not only keep them apart, but it will drive Mary into the arms of suave businessman Lew Lentz, played by Tom Conway. Kenny and Lew don't like each other . . . . Kenny and Lew REALLY don't like each other, and Mary will become the fuse to the bomb that will explode before the end of the story. This leads to that and after several tense episodes that take Kenny and Lew to the edge, Kenny finally comes to his senses and gets a job, gives up his drinking and gambling, and the wedding day for Kenny and Mary arrives, and all will be roses . . . . But Lew will get have his final battle with Kenny before the wedding . . . Lew arranges to meet with Kenny and shake hands and become friends just before the wedding, so best man Gitlo, bartender at one of Lew's joints, takes Kenny over to Lew's office to patch things up before the wedding. Inside the office they discover Lew dead on the floor with the gun next to him. Everyone in town knows of the rivalry between Lew and Kenny, so Kenny tries to run away before he is discovered next to the dead man. Unfortunately the cops are already on the way and in a wild chase they shoot Kenny. Gitlo manages to escape the cops and gets Kenny to a place where someone can tend to his bullet wounds . . . . And Mary is still waiting at the church . . . . And the cops are looking for Kenny . . . . And the biggest surprise is yet to come . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
