No Wonder So Many Men are Bachelors, or, Death on the Roller Coaster

Ann Sheridan’s father was an auto mechanic, and Ann knew how to fix anything and everything on most automobiles. Although she was drop-dead gorgeous, she was a tomboy and tough as nails. She once said, “I can whistle through my fingers, bulldog a steer, light a fire with two sticks, shoot a pistol with fair accuracy, set type, and teach school.”

Ann Sheridan’s sister secretly sent a photo of Ann to a newspaper to be entered in a beauty contest for a Hollywood motion picture company. She was chosen as one of six girls that were the most beautiful girls in the country in 1934. Nineteen-year-old Ann Sheridan signed a six-month contract for $50 a week, and the promise of a $25 raise every time the contract was extended.

For the next three decades Ann Sheridan was seldom out of work in Hollywood, and later on television. This story was produced by Ann Sheridan, possibly because she saw the real Ann Sheridan in this character. She is a street-tough lady who can wise-crack her way through any situation, never giving an inch to any man, whether he is an admirer, a cop, or a killer. She can handle anything they dish out, and give back double. If there was ever a female actor in the mold of Humphrey Bogart, this is her.

As our adventure opens, a mild-mannered pipe-smoking man is walking his dog on a cool evening in San Francisco. Suddenly a car screeches to a stop nearby and he watches as a man called “Danny Boy” shoots and kills the passenger in the car, dumping the dead body into the street.

Suddenly the killer sees the man walking the dog, and the man walking the dog sees the killer. The killer fires two shots at the man and drives away. The man sticks around long enough for the police to find him and determine that he has a clear memory of the killer’s face. The police want to detain the man, but he slips away and is gone. The police will ask his wife, played by Ann Sheridan, to help them find her husband, but she refuses, and then tries to find her husband on her own, with the help of a pushy newspaper reporter.

Unfortunately, the killer will always be nearby, ready to kill the reluctant witness the minute that his wife finds him. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
