Jimmy obtains an injunction against Pinkie that also serves to shut off McLane's credit for "Lucky Legs." To open the show and provide employment for her roommates, "Calamity" Jane Edwards and Jewel Perkins, Gloria offers to settle for $25,000 with Henrietta, who refuses. Annebelle, who likes Gloria, ...
