Synopsis: Racketeer Tony Gazotti is thankful that lawyer Jackson Durant helps him beat a murder rap, but Durant just does it for the thrill of it and refuses payment. Durant's defense of mobsters causes his firm to disown him and his girlfriend Sue to leave him. But when young Tom Siddall, Sue's new boyfriend, is framed for a murder, she is the first to come asking for Durant's help. Durant uses Gazotti's information network and the help of new girlfriend Gertie Waxted to find that rival gangster Jim Crelliman is involved in the framing of Siddall. When Durant sends Gertie to Crelliman's apartment in a bid to blow open the case, she is walking on thin ice.

Tony Gazotti, the notorious

cabaret director,

He was convicted of

killing a jury...

The killer turned pale.

He took off his handkerchief

and wiped his forehead.

- Boss?

- Fast!

Is there no verdict?

It's a risk.


He will be condemned.

There's no doubt.

This time justice will be done.

Miss Colby! Grokes! Comes.

Look for photos.

De Gazotti, his women,

and his family.

Put some prison bars

in front of you.

Deploy it in three columns.

Gazotti in the chair.

Espabila, we only have 20 minutes.

I want the head in size 60.

Print it as soon as you arrive.

Hurry up!

Hey, Chapman, send this letter.

- Have it?

- Here it is.

Gazotti performed.

Wait, do not hang up.

And no verdict.

Gazotti was saved.

Stop it all. There's a verdict.

Gazotti was saved.

Great, your intuition!

Change your mind.

Gazotti was saved.

Hold the chain.

How did he do it?

Do not know.

Your lawyer is a magician.

Well. Forget about Gazotti.

Concentrate on Durant.

Pages 1, 2 and 3.

Just sensationalism.

The lawyer gets acquitted

of the blackmailer.

I want his pictures in

Newport and Palm Beach.


What happiness to be outdoors!

Where are you going? Come with me.

Shoot before the champion.

He saved my ass.

You will be happy.

I'll send you US $

50,000 in an hour.

Together we can run the city.

Oh, do not worry about money.

"What is it?"

I had a lot of fun.

What can I do for you.?

Leave me in the office.

I'm talking about good service.

Do you have enemies?

- Walk on eggs.

- You saved me.

Think again.

That would bring him to the chair.

Would you have sent me there

if there was evidence?

I would be the first to applaud.

Society would be better off without you.

Yes, and without you.

Come back, cretins.

I have not met anyone like you.

He insults me and I

accept him with a smile.

Let's make a team.

I'll think about it.

I'm not a bad person.

You are a public danger.

I like you!

Follow me worshiping.


Hang on. Let them look to

see if the path is clear.

When are we going to celebrate this?

I have a date.

"Oh, Miss Leonard.

How do you know?"

What toothpaste do you use?

None. I prefer dental powder.

You know everything!

My boys passed their

lives through a sieve.

I know that note got in

algebra in Saint John.

Tell me, what is algebra?

It's bullshit, Tony.

Goodbye, Tony!

Farewell, my savior.

Goodbye, gentlemen.

See you later.

Call Miss Leonard.

Mr. Rutherford and Mr.

Stuyvesant are waiting for you.

Tell eae I'll get her

in half an hour.


I won the case.

No congratulations?

"You know how we think.

"Yes, but I proved your innocence.

And then?

He is guilty of other things.

You should not have stood by.

We lost three customers.

Okay, I'll bring others.

I do not want any more Gangsters.

Your grandfather founded this cabinet.

What would you think of you now?

Ask people. Many think as we do.

We have already discussed this.

Will you repeat such matters?


They are not selected clients,

but it's better than writing

about a will for Mrs. Welton

which reaches a million

dollars for his Pekingese.

"It's not Pekingese, it's a collie.

"Let's not get sidetracked.

I like these cases.

There is mystery, intrigue.

I like cases of traffickers.

They are human, they are alive.

"You refuse to give it up?"


In that case, we

ask you to leave.

- Get out?

- Exactly.

- Is that a joke?

- No for nothing.

This cabinet will not be a

refuge from the scum of society.

All right, gentlemen.

- We made the papers.

- Perfect.

Goodbye, Mary. See you later.

Miss Leonard is not in town.

He's in Long Island, Mr.


Good idea.

I'll be located there.

What does it means?

We are his bodyguard.

I do not need bodyguards.

Tony wants us to protect him.

Nothing will happen to me.

Come back to Tony.

He will be furious.

We have orders.

Tell her thank you, but

you do not have to.



- Bye.

- Bye.

- One more guest.

- Yes sir.

- Where are?

- On the terrace.

Take my things.

Good morning everyone.

Finally some fresh air.

Where is Sue?

Playing tennis.

Well, I'll see her.

"I'm sorry, Sue.

- I'll get it."

Welcome home!

Please, Jack!

I had forgotten how beautiful you are.

"That does not surprise me.

"Breakfast together, then."

"Oh, I can not.

- Oh how sad."

Hello. Hello, Jack.

- How are you?

- Fine thanks.

- You finished?

- Yes.

- Has won?

- Yes.

Congratulations, you're an ace.

We should celebrate that.

I was trying to

persuade her to leave.

Iros. "Oh, no, I want to play."

Let it! See you later.

What then, my dear?

That you left me 4 weeks.

I have phoned.

You did not try to see me, and

you want me to go with you?

I had a pitiful behavior.

This case was monopolizing my time.

What could I do?

I asked him to give it up.

Honey, I do not want to

insist, but I won the case.

"Does not it change anything?"


I hate to see you stand

up for these people.

They are the scum of society.

Gangsters, blackmailers, dancers.

Dear, I fought a lot today.

We do not argue anymore.

I missed you.

I love you more than anything.

You hide well.

I'll spend the rest of

my days showing you.


Start now. Promise me one thing.

- Whatever you want.

- No criminal cases.

I can not promise that.

- "I love you more than anything".
