City Streets

Synopsis: Nan, a racketeer's daughter, is in love with The Kid, a shooting gallery showman. Despite Nan's prodding, The Kid has no ambitions about joining the rackets and making enough money to support Nan in the lifestyle she's accustomed to. Her attitude changes after her father implicates her in a murder and she's sent to prison. During her incarceration, her father convinces The Kid to join the gang in order to help free Nan. When Nan is released, she wants nothing more to do with the mob and tries to get The Kid to quit, but she may be too late.

Why not?

I don't like tents.

It isn't the tents.

It's me.

You don't really love me.

Don't be a sap!

I want to see you make something

of yourself.

A racketeer like that step-father

of yours.

What's the matter with racketeers?

Anyway, they're smart!

They're not dumb... somebody I know.


Well then, why don't you get yourself

a racketeer.

Well, maybe I will!

Go ahead, you big dummy!

Wait a minute!

That's yours!


Oh, Kid... I'm sorry...

I didn't mean it.

Yes you did!

-I didn't, Kid, honest I didn't!

Yes, you did.

You think I'm a sap!

Of course I do, Kid...

But I love you... on the level!

No you don't.

Yes I do, I do!

I DO love you!

No you don't.

-I do!

I love you!


I gotta get back!

Gosh, your late, too.

Happened before.

Meet me when the shootin'-gallery closes?

Yeah... Pop's gotta go out,

but I'll be back at 12 o'clock.


-Come here.

Come here!

Where've you been?

Where've you been?

I said where've you been?

Out with that shootin'-gallery mug again?

Answer me!

Come on!

Spill it!

Good kid!

You'll never tell nobody nothin'!

Here... for keepin' your trap shut.

Good kid!

I gotta go over to Blackie's.

Stick around, till I get back.

Lay off!

That's mine!

You picked yourself a big-shot alright!

Go ahead... laugh!

He may not be a big-shot but he can

shoot better than anybody in THIS Mob.


I saw him shoot a cigar

out of a guy's mouth, once...

...when the guy got fresh.

Cigar? You don't say!

Jackie ain't sung a tune all day.

I'm worried about it.

Well, goodnight, Blackie.

Get in there, you!

Don't get sore, Blackie!

It was just a good-night kiss.

A good-bye kiss, you mean!

Oh, you don't scare me!

Just because you're running this Mob,

don't mean you can pull anything like that.
