Georgie Minnelli confronts Lucky Moore, his old childhood enemy, for interfering in his pinball machine racket. Georgie waves a gun in Lucky's face, but Lucky isn't intimidated. A cop named Larkin has just been made lieutenant, and Larkin vowed long ago that if either of these hated rivals turns up dead, the other had better have a good alibi. Georgie couldn't possibly get away with it. But Lucky has pushed Georgie too far and his old enemy shoots him dead anyway. Now the young gangster is desperate for an alibi. But getting one won't be easy. Written by J. Spurlin

If You Don"t Like This Set-up, Another Will Soon Follow
30 March 2016 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Entertaining, if not riveting, entry. Slickster Georgie (Phillips) has a long time feud with rival gangster Lucky (Chandler). Trouble is Lucky cuts in on Georgie's pinball territory so Georgie confronts the interloper who believes the slickster's too soft to do anything. Then Lucky arrogantly mocks him. Big mistake. Georgie shoots the sneering son-of-a- gun. But now he's got a bigger problem because cop Larkin will immediately suspect him. Now he needs an alibi, and fast.

Interest is in watching desperate Georgie bounce from one potential alibi to the next. It's kind of like a profile of his life, and indicates why he's being hung out to dry. Outstanding is unknown actress Shirley Smith as cheap blonde Goldie, reminding me a bit of Shelley Winters. Her broken desires are indeed touching. At spectrum's other end is Chick Chandler who spreads on his loathsome character with a trowel. Payoff is deliciously ironic, something about it not paying to be a tightwad.
