The Magic Bullet

****SPOILERS*** After a hard day at the office Wall Street bigwig John Winfield Weston, Claude Rains,decides to chill out at the local watering hole The Château Tavern Restaurant and play the horses in an adjacent and illegal horse room for a few crumbs, bucks, before heading back home in Westchester County. While trying to put in his big $2.00 bet in Weston is shot an injured by a stray bullet from bookie joint operator Gabe "The Greek" Hody, Telly Savalas, who gunned down an uncooperative customer of his who welched on a $5,000.00 bet with him. Checking out the back way Weston being an eye whiteness to the murder does everything possible to distance himself from the shooting. Not in fear of his and his families lives if Hody finds out about him but to protect the good name of the shyster insurance firm he works for Adverson & Holt that specializes in taking care of rich widows with their dead husbands money whom, by spending it while they were alive, they put into an early grave.

With the cops lead by "Mister Sensitivity" himself Det. Adam Flint, Paul Burke, trying to have Weston get the bullet removes in order to prove their murder case against Hody Weston stands firm refusing to get operated on even if, by not getting operated on, it kills him. The brutal and somewhat idiotic Hody plays right into the police's hands by at first threatening Weston and then beating up his son Donald, Stephen Bolster, and kidnapping his teenage daughter Heather, Deborah Walley. That's to make sure he doesn't talk or have his, that's Hody's, bullet removed from his left shoulder which he's not willing to do anyway!

***SPOILERS*** If that brainless thug Hody just let things remain the way they were and not have two additional murders, eyewitness at the bookie murder site, pinned on him he would have walked and not have to pay for his crimes. But in jumping the gun and putting Weston in a corned that he couldn't get out of he in fact sealed his fate. Trapped like a rat with nowhere to escape Hody, holding Heeather hostage, ends up getting gunned down before he can gun down Heather by non other then the super sensitive and caring for all human life Det. Flint. An action which really hurt him more then it did the by now dead Gabe "The Greek" Hody.
