Storyline

It's 1947 and former Marine Joe Teague - now a policeman with the notoriously corrupt Los Angeles Police Department gets an interesting offer. Nightclub comedian Hecky Nash is blackmailing someone high up in the mob - he won't give Joe a name - and he offers him $1000 to act as his bodyguard while he collects the money and hands over the incriminating information. Teague tells his superiors and the ambitious Captain William Parker sees an opportunity to nab a big-time mobster which will do all of their careers some good. Joe accompanies Hecky to the exchange but Joe has something else in mind and nothing is as straightforward as it appears. Written by garykmcd

The atmosphere as we go back and forth between 1922 and 1947 seems to be quite realistic.

When we have people such as Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen, let's at least get actors who appear to be Jewish by looks.

Heckie Nash certainly got more than he bargained for when he hires a cop to help him carry out a bribery attempt against the mob. Go know that our police officer would put three bullets into him.

Quite a dilemma for the mob. Unlike the police, they figure out right away what the police officer has done. The office brass seems mystified.

We see from earlier times why the police officer made it to commissioner. It is simply called bravery.
