HE WON’T NEED IT NOW
Bill Duffy is a tough newsman but he finally pushes too hard and is canned. That’s when he decides to take a photo job for a rich fat man named Morgan who wants Duffy to get some pictures of his ex-wife. Blackmail is involved, and Morgan wants the guy caught with the goods. But the set-up isn’t what it seems, and someone sticks a gun in Duffy’s back and makes off with the camera. Nor is the ex-wife who she appears to be. She’s Annabel English, a slumming society dame. And pretty soon Duffy is helping her get rid of the body of the dead blackmailer. Now Duffy is being followed by Morgan’s boys. It’s a toss-up who plays it harder, Morgan’s goons or red-headed Annabel, the most kill-crazy lady Duffy has ever met.
THE DEAD STAY DUMB
Dillon is as ruthless as they come, brutal and tough. When he wants something, he takes it—with a gun or with his fists, it doesn’t matter to Dillon. When he first blows into town, he hooks up with Nick and his girl, Myra. First they try to fix a fight, then Myra joins them as driver for a few heists. But Dillon isn’t satisfied with the penny-ante jobs. He’s got bigger plans. So he joins up with a local mob boss. Pretty soon, Nick realizes he’s out of his depth, but by then it’s too late. Now Dillon’s got Myra, and Myra’s got a taste of the high life. If only that were enough. Because Dillon’s got a tiger by its tail, and its name is Myra. And all Myra’s got to do to survive is stay out of the way of those iron fists.
