"I'm a pretty tough bird, Charlie." --Julius Trent
In this tale, a small laundry -- Purple Checker Club Cleaning & Dyeing, run by Julius Trent & his young partner -- gets leaned on by gangsters hunting for do-re-mi. The Mob tries to put the lean on honest business men by threatening to destroy customers' clothing if the washmen don't cough up "protection" cash by the deadline. The younger partner shows himself industrious in the love department, taking advantage of his customer connection to find the woman of his dreams. Capraesque ending. Even the meek can be strong. A crime story with heart.
