- 1. Conductor didn't want to play.
How's this guy?
- 2. Nice and willing.
- 3. Stop the train and let us off.
- 4. When we tell you.
- 5. Ed, Cotton, when we get the train
on the spur, start hopping. Go.
- 6. Zuckie, you know what to do?
- 7. Sure. I throw the switch,
and then I beat it back...
- 8. All right, just do it. Stop the gabbing.
- 9. All right. This is where we want off.
- 10. Stop it right here.
- 11. Get away from those controls.
- 12. What's this? A holdup?
- 13. No. You're seven minutes late.
We're just changing engineers.
- 14. A lot fancier than my old coal burner
on the C and O.
- 15. Shut up.
- 16. Open up and you won't get hurt.
- 17. Sounds bad, Cody.
- 18. Why don't you give my address, too?
- 19. Only the treasury stuff!
- 20. Hurry up.
- 21. You won't get away with it, Cody.
- 22. Cody, huh?
- 23. Go get the car started.
- 24. You've got a good memory for names.
- 25. Zuckie got scalded.
- 26. Come on, let's get out of here.
- 27. A week has passed since bandits jumped
a mail train...
- 28. coming out of the High Sierra Tunnel...
- 29. and fled with $300,000 in federal currency,
leaving four dead.
- 30. Treasury authorities now believe
the gang has escaped to Arizona...
- 31. where today a bank was raided
and two tellers killed...
- 32. with the same cold-bloodedness
- 33. Now we're supposed to be in Arizona.
- 34. Any place would be better than this.
- 35. We got to blow out of here.
- 36. Cody calls
charging roadblocks unscientific.
- 37. It ain't safe having a crackpot
- 38. - It's about time somebody took over.
- 39. A very good friend of mine: me.
- 40. Where do you want the body sent?
- 41. Been golfing, Ed?
- 42. We got a sack full of dough and
we're holed up like a bunch of gophers.
- 43. When we moving out?
- 44. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe in the spring.
- 45. I'll give it a lot of thought. All right?
- 46. It smells good, Ma.
- 47. if you're getting hungry,
I could do with some help, son.
- 48. Verna. Help Ma with the groceries.
- 49. Well, if it ain't the sleeping beauty.
- 50. What else does a girl do
around this bear trap?
- 51. There's plenty you can do
without wearing out the mattress.
- 52. It's the only place I don't freeze.
I've been cold for a week. Not even a fire.
- 53. Who's gonna see a little bit of smoke
100 miles from nowhere?
- 54. Help Ma with the grub.
- 55. He's getting worse. He needs a doc.
- 56. When the time comes.
- 57. - Want some coffee, Ed?
- Thanks, Verna.
- 58. Let him get it himself.
My wife don't wait on nobody.
- 59. You know something, Verna...
- 60. if I turn my back long enough
for Big Ed to put a hole in it...
- 61. there'd be a hole in it.
- 62. Big Ed. Great Big Ed.
- 63. You know why they call him that?
- 64. Because his ideas are big.
- 65. Someday he's gonna get a really big one
- 66. It'll be his last.
- 67. That's the second one he's had in a month.
- 68. He's nuts, just like his old man.
- 69. It's these mountains, Cody.
- 70. It's not good for you, cold all the time.
- 71. Can't breathe the air.
- 72. Let's get out, son.
- 73. It's going.
- 74. - It's going?
- 75. - Are you sure?
- 76. It's like having a red-hot buzz saw
inside my head.
- 77. No, not yet, son.
- 78. Don't let them see you like that.
Might give some of them ideas.
- 79. Always thinking about your Cody,
- 80. That's right.
- 81. Top of the world, son.
- 82. Don't know what I'd do without you, Ma.
- 83. - Better?
- 84. Now go on out.
Show them you're all right.
- 85. What are you all gaping at?
- 86. And I thought I told you
to help Ma with the groceries.
- 87. Cody, there's a storm coming.
- 88. Every road's gonna be blocked,
the guy said.
- 89. - What guy?
- On the radio.
- 90. - How long did he give it?
- 91. That's just what I've been waiting for.
Is everything packed?
- 92. We been packed for a week.
- 93. You sure it's safe, Cody?
- 94. A storm keeps everybody busy.
Clean up this place, and clean it up right.
- 95. And don't leave any calling cards.
- 96. I told you to keep away from that radio.
- 97. if that battery is dead, it'll have company.
- 98. It's your suitcase, Cody.
- 99. Why don't you keep it all?
- 100. You're cute. Come here.
- 101. Why don't you?
We could travel, buy things.
- 102. That's what money's for.
- 103. I look good in a mink coat, honey.
- 104. You'd look good in a shower curtain.
- 105. We're pals, Cotton.
- 106. You'll see that I get away all right,
see that I get to a doc?
- 107. Sure, Zuckie.
- 108. We're all set.
- 109. Cody, I was pretty good
back there on the train, huh?
- 110. - Pretty good for my first job, huh?
- Yeah, you were great.
- 111. You won't leave me here.
You'll take me with you.
- 112. We can't take chances
of being picked up with you in the car.
- 113. We'll send a doc back right away.
- 114. You're gonna let me die.
- 115. Cotton, don't leave me.
- 116. Suppose they find him?
You know how Zuckie talks.
- 117. He won't talk. Cotton.
- 118. You meant what you said
about sending a doc?
- 119. Yeah, sure. A specialist. You.
- 120. Here. If you're such a pal of his.
Go back and make it easy for him.
- 121. Rest easy, Ma. We're 300 miles
from the tunnel. What have they got?
- 122. A corpse without a record.
- 123. Nothing to tie him in
with the tunnel job or us.
- 124. Don't make a sound. It's me, Cotton.
Look, I'll try to come back.
- 125. Here's some cigarettes.
- 126. Thanks, Cotton.
- 127. Ed, we'll separate.
- 128. Go east until you hit the highway,
and double back over the bridge.
- 129. Stay on dirt roads all the way. You hear?
- 130. Hope I didn't get you up here
on a wild goose chase, Mr. Evans.
- 131. Geese we're looking for are pretty wild.
- 132. A couple of hunters found him frozen
up in the mountains.
- 133. We started wondering: stranger,
bullet hole in the roof of the cabin...
- 134. particularly the condition of his face.
Tell him, Doc.
- 135. Despite the third-degree burn...
- 136. the eyebrows and hairline
weren't even singed.
- 137. That means either boiling water or steam.
- 138. So, we thought of a steam engine.
- 139. Good hunch. Get me his clothes.
- 140. Ernie, get his fingerprints.
Take a mask of his face.
- 141. Here you are, Mr. Evans. Nothing in the
pockets but this pack of cigarettes.
- 142. So like you told me, Mr. Evans,
I made the rounds for a month.
- 143. Drifting, kind of. Not too eager.
- 144. You know, just dropping a word
in the right ear...
- 145. that I'm interested in picking up
a few odd dollars.
- 146. Not a buck from the tunnel job showed up.
- 147. They haven't buried it in tin cans, Willie.
- 148. Okay.
- 149. I'll go out the back way, if you don't mind.
- 150. Any of the boys spotted me
coming up here, I'd be in a real jam.
- 151. - Did you get anything out of Willie?
- A blank.
- 152. This will cheer you up, Phil.
Spectrograph of dirt from the tunnel.
- 153. Spectrograph of dust deposits
taken from the dead man's clothes.
- 154. There's no doubt about it.
They're identical. It all adds up...
- 155. and places our friend in the morgue
right smack at the scene of the crime.
- 156. Looks like we're in business.
- 157. From Washington.
- 158. "Have no fingerprint record dead man."
- 159. That's one I never expected.
Dead man, dead end.
- 160. "But prints on cellophane
of cigarette package...
- 161. "belong Giovanni 'Cotton' Valenti...
- 162. "known member, Jarrett gang."
- 163. And I thought
you were never gonna talk, baby.
- 164. - Where's Ma?
- She went to the market.
- 165. - Which one?
- She don't tell me those details.
- 166. What difference does it make?
- 167. I'll tell you what difference it makes.
They've got Zuckie in a morgue upstate.
- 168. The T-men tied him in with us
on the tunnel job.
- 169. - What?
- Yeah. We're all as hot as pistols.
- 170. I don't know how they did it.
Somebody must have tipped them.
- 171. It's always "somebody tipped them,"
never "the cops are smart."
- 172. We had enough food for the week.
Why did she go out?
- 173. You like strawberries, don't you?
Well, she just had to get some for her boy.
- 174. Evans speaking.
- 175. Her car is parked outside pointing west.
- 176. Good. I'll be down there right away.
- 177. There'll be a marker on the rear bumper.
- 178. That's what I thought, Mr. Evans.
- 179. Where Ma goes, Cody goes.
- 180. We'll use the A-B-C method.
- 181. I'm B.
- 182. I'll keep first position behind suspect
on Arango Blvd.
- 183. 227, you're A.
- 184. You drive parallel on Lattimer.
- 185. Okay.
- 186. 323, you're C. The same on Fairchild.
- 187. - Got that?
- 188. Suspect proceeding dead ahead
on Arango Blvd.
- 189. Approaching Bakeman.
- 190. Suspect turned north on Bakeman.
- 191. C, pick her up at Fairchild.
- 192. A will take your position.
- 193. Got her.
- 194. Traveling dead ahead on Bakeman,
20 miles an hour.
- 195. Suspect turning west on Calhoun.
- 196. C, proceed dead ahead.
Take position on the right.
- 197. Right.
- 198. A, pick her up on Calhoun.
- 199. Roger.
- 200. Got her.
Going due west about 30 miles per hour.
- 201. Hold the phone.
- 202. She's turning left on Cling.
- 203. Let her go.
- 204. C, cut over fast to Arango.
- 205. - Cover her on the left.
- 206. A, proceed dead ahead.
- 207. I'll pick her up when she crosses Fairchild.
- 208. Get around it.
- 209. A, C, cut into Fairchild. I've lost her.
- 210. Down there.
- 211. - Come in, C.
- That's a dead spot.
- 212. It would be. Turn around. We'll go back.
- 213. Hold it.
- 214. Come in, A.
- 215. Come in, C.
- 216. - Beat it up the hill and call the others.
- You're not tackling him alone.
- 217. I'll just keep an eye on him. Hurry.
- 218. What's the use of having money
if you gotta run...
- 219. every time somebody sees a shadow?
- 220. It's just a feeling I had.
I could have been wrong.
- 221. Your hunches are never wrong, Ma.
- 222. We'll leave the sedan,
the car they're looking for.
- 223. You bring the bags and I'll get the coupe.
- 224. You're not going anywhere, Jarrett.
Put your hands up where I can see them.
- 225. Get those bags in, and get in fast!
- 226. Down the highway, Ernie.
- 227. Happens every night. Ruins the movie.
- 228. Peanuts. Popcorn.
- 229. Kill that.
- 230. This is great.
Where do we go after the second feature?
- 231. You're staying put.
I'm the only one going anyplace.
- 232. - Where, Cody?
- Gonna give myself up.
- 233. What are you talking about?
You haven't a chance.
- 234. Four dead. It's the gas chamber for sure.
- 235. You think I'm dumb enough
to give myself up to the T-men?
- 236. What's the difference? You walk into
the cops and they turn you over.
- 237. Remember a guy named Scratch Morton?
- 238. Yeah. The guy on the lam from Illinois.
You had a talk with him one night.
- 239. - That's the one.
- I remember.
- 240. Knocked over a hotel payroll
- 241. The night we pulled the tunnel job. Handy?
- 242. Talk plain, son.
- 243. I pulled that Springfield heist,
not Scratch Morton.
- 244. I'm going to Illinois and take a state rap.
I'll get two years at the most.
- 245. They'll still be waiting for you
for the tunnel job.
- 246. What tunnel job?
- 247. While those hoodlums were killing
innocent people on the train...
- 248. I was pushing in a hotel in Springfield.
- 249. Couldn't be in both places at once, could l?
- 250. Little thing I cooked up
before the tunnel job.
- 251. You're the smartest there is.
- 252. Sure, it's smart, but what about me?
What do I do for the next two years?
- 253. The same as you did
before he married you.
- 254. You better not, baby. I'll be back.
- 255. I'll be waiting for you, honey.
You can trust me.
- 256. if the T-men pick you up,
you don't know a thing.
- 257. You haven't seen me in months.
Ma, you do all the talking.
- 258. - I can handle them.
- Verna, you cry a little, like you're sad.
- 259. How are you going to make it to Illinois?
- 260. Private plane. Don't worry.
- 261. Goodbye.
- 262. Be kind of a break to get rid
of me for a while, won't it?
- 263. I'll be around, Cody.
- 264. I told you,
I was just trying to cheer up Verna.
- 265. She's been lonesome all this time,
missing Cody so much.
- 266. So I went to the market
to buy her things for a real spread.
- 267. Thought it'd make her feel better.
That so, Verna?
- 268. Yet as soon as you returned
to the auto court, you left again. Why?
- 269. 'Cause we decided to go
to a movie instead.
- 270. - What theater?
- San Val Drive In.
- 271. - What picture?
- Task Force.
- 272. Exciting. Verna liked it a lot.
- 273. - Cody like it?
- How could he?
- 274. I told you.
Cody hasn't been in California for months.
- 275. I suppose he shot me
all the way from another state.
- 276. What makes you think he shot you?
Lots of people have guns.
- 277. I was as close to him as I am to you.
- 278. Anybody else see him?
- 279. Just you. And his wife.
- 280. Of course, being an old woman,
I wouldn't know much about the law...
- 281. but I hear you got to have witnesses
to make anything stand up in court.
- 282. You see Cody last night, Verna?
- 283. Makes you the only one,
Mr. Evans, doesn't it?
- 284. Seems to. If Cody's
been out of California for months...
- 285. I suppose he couldn't have engineered
that train robbery six weeks ago.
- 286. I'm not going to sit here and hear you
accuse my boy without proof.
- 287. Besides, I know my rights.
You can't keep us here.
- 288. You got nothing on us.
- 289. All right, Mrs. Jarrett, that'll be all now.
- 290. That's better. Come on, Verna.
- 291. Stop crying. Nobody's going to hurt you.
- 292. Mr. Fallon just arrived from the airport.
- 293. Send him right in.
- 294. Hello, Phil. How's the arm?
- 295. I'll live. Hey, you're looking good.
- 296. It's that prison diet.
Great chef in San Quentin.
- 297. I hated to leave.
- 298. You did a whale of a job.
- 299. Most talkative con
I ever shared a cell with.
- 300. That whole syndicate comes up for trial
in a few weeks. Now, what's that?
- 301. You put it on a pole,
wind a spool of silk thread around it...
- 302. and you hold the pole over the water.
- 303. Then you sit under a nice, shady tree
- 304. After a while, a hungry fish comes along,
nips at your hook, and you've got dinner.
- 305. For the next two weeks,
I won't think about anything...
- 306. except the eternal struggle
between man and the fish.
- 307. I've been promised a vacation.
- 308. Sorry, Hank, that's out.
- 309. Phil, look at me. College degree,
- 310. and I spend most of my time in prison.
- 311. An undercover specialist.
Eight sentences in five years.
- 312. Dannemora, Sing Sing, Leavenworth...
- 313. I joined the department
to put criminals behind bars...
- 314. and here I am, stir crazy.
- 315. Read this.
- 316. Who checks confessions in Springfield?
- 317. Every rookie knows Scratch Morton
went underground after that hotel job.
- 318. You won't let Jarrett get away
with a two-bit prison stretch?
- 319. - Maybe?
- 320. A hoodlum turns himself in
on a phony rap...
- 321. and beats the gas chamber.
- 322. I'll bet you he's thumbing his nose
at Uncle Sam now and loving it.
- 323. Jarrett outsmarted you.
- 324. That's just what we want him to think.
We're working with the Springfield police.
- 325. We arranged for the confession to check.
So, what happens?
- 326. Jarrett does a stretch in the penitentiary.
- 327. In case he's lonely,
wants to talk to someone...
- 328. we'll let one of our boys do a stretch
right in the same cell.
- 329. Still going fishing, Hank?
- 330. Yeah. In what prison?
- 331. You'll enjoy the food there.
- 332. - Arrested him myself.
- Okay, what's the pitch?
- 333. You'll be committed
to the penitentiary in Illinois.
- 334. You'll be one of Jarrett's cellmates.
- 335. Stick with him until you find out...
- 336. where he unloaded $300,000
in federal currency...
- 337. without a single bill showing up.
- 338. Also, try to learn the identity
of the very special fence...
- 339. that engineered this deal.
- 340. How does he operate?
- 341. Buys stolen money here,
30¢, 40¢ on the dollar.
- 342. Peddles it on the European black market
for who knows how much.
- 343. No questions asked. Sweet racket.
- 344. In step with the times.
- 345. That's your assignment.
- 346. I wouldn't ask you to do
another undercover job...
- 347. if we weren't up against it.
- 348. Hello, Hank. Prison records from Illinois.
Your new buddies.
- 349. Busy little place, isn't it?
2,700 of the roughest and toughest.
- 350. A few who might recognize you.
Let's go to work.
- 351. - Find another old client?
- Yeah. Red Draper.
- 352. Questioned him in '46
about a warehouse job.
- 353. That makes two for transfer.
Better run through the arrest once more.
- 354. I'll be picked up at a joint
known as Tom's Hideaway.
- 355. Bill's Hideaway.
- 356. On what seems
like an ordinary hood roundup.
- 357. I'm spotted as a lamister.
I make a break for it.
- 358. When I pick myself off the floor,
I'm meek as a baby.
- 359. - How do I get information out to you?
- Visiting days.
- 360. Mother again?
- 361. Wife this time.
- 362. One thing though. This time,
get me somebody with a good memory.
- 363. I had a lot of trouble with my "mother"
in San Quentin.
- 364. This time, we'll get you a girl in the bureau
who's a memory expert.
- 365. I'm partial to blondes.
- 366. Well, who isn't? As soon as I pick her,
I'll send you a picture.
- 367. - We move this guy.
- Who is he?
- 368. Bo Creel. Arrested him two years ago.
- 369. Wait a minute.
We don't have to worry about him.
- 370. Finishes his stretch Saturday.
He'll be out before you're sentenced.
- 371. Good. Bo Creel would know me
in the dark.
- 372. This job isn't going to be
like any of the others, Hank.
- 373. You see, there's insanity in the Jarretts.
- 374. Some of it rubbed off on Cody.
His father died in an institution.
- 375. I've had a few strange cellmates
in my time...
- 376. but this sounds like the jackpot.
- 377. When he was a kid,
he used to fake headaches...
- 378. to get his mother's attention away
from the rest of the family. It worked.
- 379. As he grew up,
the fancied headaches became real...
- 380. until now they tear him to pieces.
- 381. Any minute, he's apt to crack open
at the seams.
- 382. There goes our case.
So you'll be working against time.
- 383. Suits me. Quicker the better.
- 384. Except that Cody's not easy
to get close to in a hurry.
- 385. The only person he's ever cared about
or trusted is his mother.
- 386. No one else has ever made a dent,
not even his wife.
- 387. His mother's been the prop
that's held him up.
- 388. He's got a fierce psychopathic devotion
- 389. All his life, whenever he got in a spot...
- 390. he just put out his hand,
and there was Ma Jarrett.
- 391. Without her, maybe Cody'd...
Just like his old man.
- 392. You mean I'm supposed to take
- 393. Never can tell. He might need someone.
- 394. I'll practice up on my lullabies.
Nothing else here.
- 395. Good. Let's run through
your background again.
- 396. Born Detroit, March 23, 1919.
- 397. State reform school, 1934, vandalism.
- 398. suspicion, grand larceny,
- 399. Good.
- 400. The State of Illinois v. Arthur Cody Jarrett.
- 401. Arthur Cody Jarrett,
on your own admission...
- 402. you have been convicted of the robbery
of the Palace Hotel on October 12.
- 403. It is now my duty to pronounce sentence.
- 404. For the crime of grand larceny,
you are hereby sentenced to serve...
- 405. not less than one
and not more than three years...
- 406. in the state penitentiary.
- 407. The State of Illinois v. Victor Pardo.
- 408. How is he? Tough?
- 409. With Big Ed giving the orders now,
there'll be all kinds of fireworks.
- 410. He's got plans that'll make
the old Jarrett mob look like a...
- 411. Can you read him?
- 412. Yeah.
- 413. Parker moves his lips pretty good.
It's about Big Ed.
- 414. What'd he say?
- 415. He's the number one boy now,
- 416. In more ways than one.
- 417. - What was that crack?
- I couldn't read him, Cody.
- 418. - Was that about my wife?
- Honest, he had his mouth covered.
- 419. Maybe a kick in his skull
would do him some good.
- 420. They got rules in this chicken coop. You
start anything, you'll wind up in a hole.
- 421. Did I ask you for any advice?
Look, Pardo, I've been watching you...
- 422. and up till now, you haven't done
anything I can put my finger on.
- 423. Maybe that's what bothers me.
- 424. I don't know you,
and what I don't know, I don't trust.
- 425. To me, you're a face and a number,
and let's keep it that way.
- 426. When I want your help, I'll ask for it.
- 427. Have it your way, Cody.
- 428. Attention, men.
- 429. The following new men report
to the dispensary for shots:
- 430. Abbott, Jordan, Bacon, Pardo, Butler...
- 431. Jenkins, Jarrett, Williams, Phillips.
- 432. Hughes, Russell.
- 433. Keep it moving, boys. No talking.
- 434. Well, if it ain't Bo Creel.
- 435. Boys in L.A. had a coming-out party.
It was planned for you a month ago.
- 436. I'm packing, and bang,
flat on my back with pneumonia.
- 437. The doc's checking me out today.
- 438. See you in eight years.
- 439. Hyde, Frank.
- 440. - Keep moving, boys. No talking.
- Jacoby, George.
- 441. All right, move up.
- 442. Jarrett, Arthur Cody.
- 443. I'm leaving tomorrow, Cody.
- 444. - Anything I can do for you on the coast?
- Yeah, look up Big Ed.
- 445. - Tell him I was asking for him.
- Johnson, Bate.
- 446. Holden, John.
- 447. Get the lead out.
- 448. Coon, Fred.
- 449. Scared, sonny?
- 450. Break it up over there.
- 451. Who's that reindeer?
- 452. I didn't do nothing. He's nuts.
- 453. A couple months in solitary
will cool you off, bugger.
- 454. Fisher.
- 455. Maddox. Pardo.
- 456. I'm awfully sorry, my good man.
But Mr. Pardo is still on vacation.
- 457. His month's up today.
- 458. It is, huh? That's cozy.
- 459. Look at what they left out of this one.
- 460. It must have been a lulu
before the warden got it.
- 461. - Hey, Herbert.
- 462. Any chance you get, read Pardo, will you?
- 463. - Why?
- Read him.
- 464. Maybe on visiting days.
That's when they loosen up.
- 465. What do you have against him, Cody?
Pardo's all right.
- 466. Didn't I check his record
up at the dispensary?
- 467. That's only a record.
What else do we know about him?
- 468. Maybe that envelope
will tell us something.
- 469. Think you ought to? That's U.S. mail.
- 470. I'm a U.S. citizen, ain't l?
- 471. Not lately.
- 472. Wife. Kid don't talk much.
- 473. When you're married,
you don't get a chance to. Nice.
- 474. We'll put it right over here
where we can see it.
- 475. He'll know we've been in his mail.
- 476. All right. So he'll know.
- 477. Be a nice surprise
when he gets out of solitary.
- 478. Hi, kid.
- 479. Let me shake the hand
that slugged Roy Parker.
- 480. Why did you do it, Pardo?
- 481. You know they got rules in this joint,
- 482. Yeah. Maybe I didn't want
to get my shots.
- 483. I guess his eyes ain't so good
- 484. All right, what's the gag?
- 485. What's she done to herself?
- 486. Had the best-looking blonde I ever saw.
When my back's turned, she's a brunette.
- 487. Don't even look like her anymore.
- 488. Maybe she's hot.
- 489. Whenever I changed my hair,
so did my missis.
- 490. She better be a blonde
when I get out of here.
- 491. Yeah. Too bad your little trick
didn't work, Pardo.
- 492. Doc says you got
to take your shots anyway.
- 493. Yeah, Benny.
- 494. Parker's shooting his mouth off again.
Told Benny your boys pulled a caper.
- 495. - How much did they get?
- 496. - Are you in for any of it?
- Full share.
- 497. No kidding?
- 498. What's being in here got to do with it?
They're his boys. What they get, he gets.
- 499. Yeah. Ma sees to that.
- 500. Get one thing clear, all of you.
- 501. Anything we get...
- 502. Cody's in for his full share.
- 503. That's how it is.
- 504. Anyone thinks different...
- 505. say so now...
- 506. or would you rather wait
till Cody gets out?
- 507. Well, any argument?
- 508. Het? Cotton? Happy? Ed?
- 509. How come, Big Ed?
- 510. You're the one I expected to give trouble.
- 511. Fair is fair.
- 512. We aren't gonna forget Cody
after all he did for us.
- 513. Cody'll be real grateful to you.
- 514. Where do you think you're going?
- 515. To pick strawberries.
- 516. All right, boys, beat it. It's getting late.
- 517. Het, tell Verna I want her back in here.
- 518. - What's eating you, sugar?
- You and your big ideas.
- 519. That's all they are. Ideas.
- 520. "You and me belong together, sugar.
Just leave it to Big Ed."
- 521. I'm sick of waiting
for you to make your move.
- 522. You're as scared of Cody as any of them.
He's still Mr. Big, in prison or out.
- 523. - What makes you think so?
- You. Fair is fair, is it?
- 524. That's quite a beef you put up
about Cody being in on the cut.
- 525. See, a guy who thinks his pals
are taking care of him...
- 526. he gets kind of careless.
- 527. What does that mean?
- 528. Alive, Cody gets out
in one, two years, maybe.
- 529. Dead, he gets out sooner.
- 530. Dead?
- 531. Right now, he's a sitting duck
up there in that pen.
- 532. He's rubbing elbows with a guy
that does anything I say.
- 533. When, Ed?
- 534. When I say so.
- 535. Where's Pardo?
- 536. You know all about radios.
Maybe you can fix the warden's.
- 537. - I'll fix it so it blows up in his face.
- Suits me.
- 538. Come on. Back to your places.
Go ahead. Get on back there.
- 539. Are you hurt, Jarrett?
- 540. No. Things were getting
kind of dull around here, anyway.
- 541. Back to your work. You, too, Pardo.
- 542. - The lever slipped.
- You can tell that to the warden later.
- 543. I saw that just in time.
- 544. What do you want? A medal?
- 545. You would have looked like that barrel.
- 546. You almost walked into it yourself.
- 547. Why should you care
if a guy named Cody Jarrett gets his...
- 548. if you don't want something?
- 549. Okay. Keep your medal.
- 550. Come on, break it up. Get going, Jarrett.
- 551. Sorry, Cody.
- 552. Forget it, Parker.
- 553. Accidents will happen.
- 554. Attention. The following men
- 555. Reynolds, Allen, Jarrett, Kaminsky...
- 556. Williams, Phillips, Jordan.
- 557. Hello, Ma.
- 558. Cody. You been hurt.
- 559. - Oh, it's nothing. Just an accident.
- You sure?
- 560. What kind of question is that?
Why are you nervous? Anything wrong?
- 561. - Plenty.
- Like what?
- 562. That's why I come.
- 563. I'm the one to tell you.
- 564. It's Big Ed and Verna. They run out.
- 565. It's my fault, Cody. I let you down.
- 566. I said I'd take care of things
and I let you down.
- 567. I saw it coming,
but I didn't think he'd have the guts.
- 568. Forget it, Ma.
- 569. It was in the cards
for Big Ed to make his try.
- 570. Don't you care?
- 571. Sure. What's mine is mine,
but I ain't gonna let it make me sick.
- 572. I'll take care of them when I get out.
- 573. That's what I told myself.
I'll help you, Cody, like always.
- 574. You'll be out soon,
back on top of the world.
- 575. When you're around, Ma,
nothing can stop me.
- 576. That's right.
- 577. Only you got to be careful about Big Ed.
- 578. if I know Big Ed, right now he's doing
enough worrying for the both of us.
- 579. Maybe not.
- 580. Can't expect me to come looking for him.
- 581. That's what I'm getting at.
- 582. When you get out...
- 583. he knows his life
isn't worth a plugged nickel.
- 584. When a tinhorn like that thinks
he's big enough to take your place...
- 585. he's got to feel pretty safe.
- 586. Now, all of a sudden, he makes his move...
- 587. like he was sure
you'd never get out of here...
- 588. except in a box.
- 589. I see what you mean.
- 590. You said it was an accident?
- 591. For a minute, I thought it was.
- 592. How'd it happen?
- 593. A pal of Big Ed's dropped something.
- 594. You see, Cody? I was right.
- 595. He was figuring you'd be dead.
- 596. Relax, Ma. I'm still here, ain't l?
- 597. if he tried it once, he'll try it again.
- 598. I'll still walk out of this joint,
and then I'll take care of Big Ed.
- 599. And let him live that long? No, Cody.
- 600. I'll take care of Big Ed.
- 601. No, Ma. You won't have a chance.
- 602. Any time I can't handle his kind,
I'll know I'm getting old.
- 603. No one does what he's done to you, son,
and gets away with it.
- 604. No, Ma. Look, listen to me.
You won't have a chance.
- 605. I'm going after him to keep him
from having you knocked off here.
- 606. - I'm telling you, don't do it.
- Goodbye, Cody.
- 607. Ma!
- 608. Keep your hands off that wire.
- 609. What's the matter, Parker?
- 610. I ain't going to do anything.
- 611. Not now.
- 612. I'm going to let you stay awake nights...
- 613. sweat it out.
- 614. Then when I get ready, good and ready...
- 615. I'll pay you back.
- 616. I'll take care of Big Ed.
- 617. I'll take care of him, Cody.
- 618. What's the matter, Cody?
- 619. My head.
- 620. Cover for me.
- 621. Watch it.
- 622. Fingers are kind of thick today.
- 623. No doctors.
- 624. It's all right now. He's gone.
- 625. - Where's the pain?
- It's right here.
- 626. Don't let it beat you.
You are a top man, aren't you?
- 627. Since I was a kid,
I've been reading about you.
- 628. Always hoping I could join up with you.
- 629. You don't want to let those two-bit mugs
see Cody Jarrett on his knees.
- 630. Come on.
- 631. - You all right, Cody?
- 632. - Just can't sleep, that's all.
- That headache gone?
- 633. - Yeah.
- Then why can't you sleep?
- 634. It's Ma. She's walking into trouble.
- 635. - Anything I can do?
- 636. Yeah. Maybe there is, kid.
- 637. For a while, I figured out
that sitting out this penny-ante stretch...
- 638. would be a kind of vacation...
- 639. take the heat off me for another job.
- 640. Sometimes you make plans,
sometimes they don't work out.
- 641. Then you got to get doing and fast,
- 642. - I got business on the outside.
- Going to crash out?
- 643. Yeah. Want to come along?
- 644. Maybe I do. Did you tell anybody else?
- 645. Figured on cutting in Tommy Ryley.
- 646. Then you'll have to cut in 10 more.
Why do you want Ryley?
- 647. He's got a gun stashed.
- 648. Don't need a gun.
- 649. They're not gonna open the gates for us.
- 650. You think you're the only guy
in this paw that wants out?
- 651. What do you think
I've been dreaming about nights?
- 652. I got a way to get a mile from here
before anybody knows what hit them.
- 653. Without artillery, it can't be done.
- 654. No? Listen, I'm a pretty handy fella
with electricity, you remember?
- 655. Well, I figured a way to fix the generators.
- 656. You know what that means?
- 657. I have a slight idea.
- 658. The generators control everything:
searchlights, gun turret, main gate.
- 659. Who needs artillery?
- 660. Only we got to do it alone.
- 661. We're going to need a car.
- 662. My wife's coming tomorrow.
We'll set it all up.
- 663. All right, kid. It's a deal...
- 664. and if it works, I'll pay you back.
- 665. Maybe you'll give me that medal.
- 666. Solid gold.
- 667. Good news for you, Herbert.
- 668. You've had good news
for the last 12 years.
- 669. I'm working on a plan
to get your case reviewed.
- 670. - Hello, Margaret.
- You're looking well, Vic.
- 671. We're being watched.
Say anything you like and make it good.
- 672. Listen to me carefully.
- 673. Divorce? Vic, you can't mean that.
- 674. Why? What have I done?
- 675. That's fine.
- 676. Jarrett's getting out of here
and I'm going with him.
- 677. I know how you feel, but don't ask me
to do anything that'll break my heart.
- 678. It might be better for you.
- 679. It's my life.
Let me decide what to do with it.
- 680. Just the two of us.
- 681. Tell Evans we'll break out Thursday night.
- 682. Tell him to plant a getaway car
with an oscillator.
- 683. Can you remember that?
With an oscillator.
- 684. I'll remember, darling.
- 685. - Everything clear?
- Perfectly clear.
- 686. You won't be sorry, Vic. When you get out,
we'll be happy. I'll see to that.
- 687. Nice. Where'd you learn all that?
- 688. How did you know?
- 689. This time I'm going right
to the top to get you out.
- 690. - Herbert, are you listening?
- Sure, Jerry.
- 691. But if that fails,
you'll have to serve the rest of your term.
- 692. Jerry, you couldn't get me out of here
if I was pardoned.
- 693. All right, this is the prison.
- 694. We place the getaway car in these trees...
- 695. with the oscillator under its rear axle
and hooked up to the battery.
- 696. Our cars will be parked here, a mile or so
away, one here and the other here.
- 697. We assume that Jarrett and Hank
come out here somewhere.
- 698. They pile into the getaway car,
and they're off.
- 699. - You ready, Ernie?
- 700. The transmitter wavelength is 47.1.
- 701. 47.1.
- 702. All right. Switch it on.
- 703. Our receivers pick up that sound
from the oscillator...
- 704. which enables us to cross-plot
their exact position.
- 705. For example...
- 706. suppose the impulse received here...
- 707. has a bearing of 210 degrees.
- 708. This one here reads 45 degrees.
- 709. We plot them like so.
- 710. Where the lines cross,
that's where they are.
- 711. It doesn't matter how far they travel.
- 712. As long as our cars
are within receiving distance...
- 713. we can tell where they are.
- 714. Switch it off.
- 715. How far is receiving distance?
- 716. We had a dry run on a car yesterday.
Kept tabs on him for 20 miles.
- 717. That little thing?
- 718. You can make one out
of your bedside radio. I'll show you how.
- 719. When you've got a week to spare,
Ernie'll tell you all about electronics.
- 720. We'll meet at the airport in 40 minutes.
Be in Springfield late this afternoon.
- 721. Tonight.
- 722. Isn't that Lefeld down there? Nat Lefeld?
- 723. From the coast mob. Came in today.
- 724. They checked him in today?
- 725. Ask him how my mother is.
- 726. Ask about Cody's mother.
- 727. She's dead.
- 728. Dead?
- 729. I want to get out of here!
- 730. Get me out!
- 731. Special for Jarrett.
- 732. - Hiya, Doc.
- Hi, Ryley.
- 733. Hi, Cody. Brought you some grub.
- 734. Hot soup made special.
- 735. How are you, Vic? Glad to see you, kid.
You're a good boy, Vic.
- 736. It's me, Tommy Ryley.
- 737. That's right, Vic. Play it smart.
- 738. Play it smart.
That's the only way it'll work.
- 739. Here, get some of this into you.
- 740. Next time you come, bring the gun.
- 741. I like the way you go about it, Vic.
Bring the gun.
- 742. You sure you won't try
some of this delicious soup?
- 743. I'll get it if you take me along, Cody.
- 744. I don't want any of that slop.
- 745. Try it on the warden. It's a deal.
- 746. if you don't want it,
I guess you don't want it.
- 747. But you gotta keep up your strength, fella.
- 748. if the warden don't want it,
try it on the governor.
- 749. Guess he ain't hungry.
- 750. Dr. Simpson speaking.
- 751. Yes, Warden.
I've just finished my report on Jarrett.
- 752. Violent, homicidal.
- 753. He'll probably have recurrent periods
of normal behavior, but...
- 754. Yes, sir. Our psychiatrists
are coming tonight.
- 755. They'll commit him to the institution.
- 756. Yes, Warden. I suggest
you prepare the release for him.
- 757. Thank you, Warden.
- 758. - Oscillator all ready?
- Ready to sing, Phil.
- 759. Put the car in the trees.
We'll pick you up and take our positions.
- 760. - Telephone, Mr. Evans.
- All right. Hold it, boys.
- 761. Evans speaking. Hello, Warden.
- 762. That is bad news.
Not altogether a surprise.
- 763. Thanks for your cooperation anyway,
- 764. Say, by the way, tomorrow
there'll be a pardon coming through...
- 765. for one of your inmates, Vic Pardo.
- 766. Rush it through, will you? Thanks.
- 767. No dice, boys. The party's off.
- 768. Jarrett's a raving maniac.
They've got him in a straitjacket.
- 769. It's a good thing for Hank
it happened inside instead of out.
- 770. It's the only good thing about it.
- 771. Take the oscillator off the car.
- 772. I'll get the plane tickets for 10:00 tonight.
- 773. You have a car
to take us to the Springfield airport?
- 774. It'll be there, Mr. Evans.
- 775. Sorry, boys. They can't all work out.
- 776. How would you like
a little change of scenery, Cody?
- 777. Someplace where we might be able
to cure your headaches?
- 778. You wouldn't mind a little trip, would you?
- 779. No. Might do me some good.
- 780. - Doctor.
- Not now, Ryley.
- 781. I want something to eat.
- 782. - You've sent away two meals already.
- That's why I'm hungry now.
- 783. Hunger's always a hopeful sign.
- 784. Nobody feeds Cody Jarrett.
What am l, a kid?
- 785. Is it all right to remove the straitjacket,
- 786. I'll do it.
- 787. They got you tied up good.
- 788. The examination's over.
All right, turn around.
- 789. Now, keep them quiet.
Doctor, you're with me.
- 790. I want you to make
a little phone call for me.
- 791. And no slip-ups,
or you're gonna need a doctor.
- 792. You're taking a little walk, boys.
Doc wants you in the dispensary.
- 793. Wait here.
- 794. - Come on, Parker.
- Where to?
- 795. Dispensary. Special invitation
to the doctor.
- 796. Here. Tie and gag him.
- 797. Drop that stick. Now.
- 798. Get in the cell.
- 799. All right. Now you two come along
and bring the tuxedo with you.
- 800. Reader, cover the outside door.
- 801. We'll not make it this way.
We'll never get to the gate.
- 802. - Who says so?
- Why me? What do you want with me?
- 803. You're my pal. I'm taking you with me.
- 804. - Look...
- 805. You got me wrong.
I got nothing against you.
- 806. It was Big Ed. He told me to do it.
- 807. You wouldn't kill me in cold blood,
- 808. I'll let you warm up a little.
- 809. There's the fingerprint that nailed me.
- 810. Psycho, put that zoot suit on him.
- 811. - Me?
- Yeah, you.
- 812. Cody, my way,
there wouldn't be no shooting.
- 813. Ain't gonna be any my way either.
- 814. We're going out of here in a car
like gentlemen on a picnic.
- 815. They want me to take a little trip.
We're gonna take a trip.
- 816. Only it better be a quiet one.
Come on, now. Get.
- 817. Pick up those hats.
- 818. Everybody down. Ryley, get those keys.
- 819. You get in the trunk. Come on, get it open.
- 820. Get in.
- 821. Ryley, you get in the front.
- 822. Reader, get in the back
and make like you're loony.
- 823. And you, you drive.
- 824. You know how jittery I am.
Any minute I'm liable to explode.
- 825. Now if we don't make it,
I've got six slugs in this gun.
- 826. One for each of us.
- 827. - Dr. Harris.
- Good night, Doc.
- 828. Hello. Yeah, speaking.
- 829. What? All right. Right away.
- 830. Turn back. Jarrett's busted out.
- 831. Black sedan. Probably headed southwest.
- 832. Following are the names of the men
who escaped with Cody Jarrett.
- 833. Thomas Ryley, Roy Parker,
Michael Curtin, Vic Pardo.
- 834. Do not shoot unless absolutely necessary.
- 835. Hostages in car.
- 836. Do not shoot...
- 837. - One break for our boy.
- What's Hank's procedure now?
- 838. He'll stay with Jarrett
till he gets what he's after.
- 839. I like your tailor. How do you like mine?
- 840. Tommy, rustle up some grub.
You, in there.
- 841. Vic, what's taking you so long?
- 842. Trying to find some more artillery.
- 843. - Let it ring.
- Someone might get suspicious.
- 844. Come on.
- 845. How you doing, Parker?
- 846. It's stuffy in here. I need some air.
- 847. Stuffy, huh? I'll give you a little air.
- 848. No clue to their movements
has been reported...
- 849. since their assault last night
on a service station...
- 850. north of Gallup, New Mexico.
- 851. It is assumed now
by federal law enforcement agencies...
- 852. that Jarrett and the other escaped
convicts are heading for California.
- 853. This concludes the nightly news summary
from KFKL: San Bernardino.
- 854. Did you check the windows?
- 855. - I said, "Did you check the windows?"
- Ed, let's get out of here.
- 856. Take it easy, baby.
We're ready for him when he comes.
- 857. I can't stand another night, Ed.
Listening, going crazy.
- 858. It ain't like waiting for some human being
who wants to kill you.
- 859. Cody ain't human.
- 860. Fill him full of lead,
and he'll still come at you.
- 861. Plug him and he drops,
same as anybody else.
- 862. The boys didn't think so.
- 863. Why did they beat it down to San Berdoo?
- 864. 'Cause they know this is
between me and Cody.
- 865. - They'll be back when it's over.
- You'll be dead.
- 866. Maybe so.
- 867. But the time comes when a man's
gotta stop running away and face things.
- 868. Or else go on running for good.
- 869. All right, throw your life away.
Stay here and shoot it out.
- 870. Me? I'm going. I want to live.
- 871. Cody might have ideas about that.
- 872. I'll go someplace he'll never find me.
- 873. The world ain't big enough, sugar.
- 874. Not when he finds out
what you did to his ma.
- 875. - You'd tell him?
- if you run out on me.
- 876. - Why not?
- But I only did it for you, Ed.
- 877. She had you covered.
- 878. Cody still ain't going to like to hear
that she got it in the back.
- 879. Feel more like staying now?
- 880. I said I'd be back.
- 881. Now tell me you're glad to see me.
- 882. Only say it low, so nobody can hear.
- 883. Cody, I'm so glad to see you.
- 884. I've been praying you'd come back.
- 885. I couldn't stand it any longer.
I was running away.
- 886. - From Big Ed?
- 887. - What's the matter? Don't you like him?
- 888. Maybe you shouldn't have teamed up
- 889. I couldn't help it, Cody.
- 890. He said if I didn't go away with him,
he'd have you killed.
- 891. All I wanted was for you to come back.
- 892. That's the truth. I love you, Cody.
- 893. - You let Ma die?
- 894. You didn't even raise a finger to help her.
- 895. You just stood there
and watched Big Ed kill her.
- 896. I tell you, you got it wrong, Cody.
- 897. Maybe you thought it was funny,
an old woman taking on a guy like that.
- 898. No. I tried to warn her...
- 899. but he caught me and beat me.
- 900. Then when Ma came,
he was waiting for her, and he...
- 901. - I can't tell you.
- Tell me.
- 902. He got her in the back.
- 903. - Is he in there now?
- 904. But you gotta be careful, Cody.
He's got the house rigged up like a trap.
- 905. You can't get in unless I tell you how.
- 906. - Ed.
- Stay where you are.
- 907. - What was that bell downstairs?
- It was me, Ed.
- 908. What were you doing down there?
- 909. I couldn't go through with it.
I tried, but I couldn't.
- 910. Talk sense.
- 911. I was going to take the car and beat it.
I was scared.
- 912. But I don't want to go anymore.
- 913. You're my honey.
- 914. Still got nerves?
- 915. Please, Ed. I feel like a drink.
- 916. - Fix me one, too.
- 917. Catch.
- 918. Listen, Cody. Ed said this joint is a cinch.
- 919. - Good for $50,000.
- 920. - Big Ed.
- Never heard of him. Go on.
- 921. The way we had it figured, Cody,
we pile out of the cars here...
- 922. we slug the guards,
and we grab the payroll here.
- 923. Blast our way out. It'll all take 50 seconds.
- 924. They got cars. They'd follow you.
- 925. That's where we use the gas truck.
- 926. I'll stall it right in the gates.
- 927. And when we beat it in the getaway cars,
I got the truck keys in my pocket.
- 928. And where do you get the gas truck?
- 929. We got one stashed behind a barn.
Bought it with our own dough. $12,000.
- 930. - You bought a gas truck?
- 931. What's the matter?
You forget how to steal one?
- 932. Maybe it ain't so bad, Cody.
$12,000 gets you $50,000.
- 933. Fence $50,000, and you get $20,000.
- 934. Then what are you going to do with that?
Buy two more gas trucks?
- 935. That joint has got the serial number
of every bill.
- 936. Any guy who says he can fence
$50,000 is crazy.
- 937. - The Trader ain't crazy.
- The Trader?
- 938. - Who's he?
- My manager, kid.
- 939. Come on. Let's get a look
at that $12,000 doll.
- 940. Cody. My radio ain't working again.
- 941. Oh, no.
- 942. What do you want it for,
- 943. Can't I go down to San Berdoo
and get it fixed?
- 944. Nobody leaves unless I say so. Now, you...
- 945. What's the matter, baby?
- 946. I'm not gonna hurt you.
- 947. Go and read your comic books. Good girl.
- 948. This fellow you call the Trader...
- 949. can you trust him?
- 950. Why?
- 951. I wouldn't like to see my share of a caper
handed to a guy who might disappear.
- 952. - Suspicious, ain't you?
- Just careful.
- 953. You don't have to worry about the Trader.
He pays off on the spot in nice, clean bills.
- 954. Where does he get rid of this stuff?
- 955. - Ships to Europe. Collects both ends.
- Smart operator.
- 956. Didn't see any of that dope from
that tunnel job pop up, did you?
- 957. I like him better now.
- 958. Not bad.
- 959. Maybe the $12,000
don't go down the drain after all.
- 960. - Hey, Het.
- 961. You're pretty good with a blowtorch.
- 962. You suppose you could cut a hole
in here into the tank?
- 963. Yeah, sure.
- 964. We're back in business, boys.
- 965. We're back in business. And not
Big Ed's way either, and not for $50,000.
- 966. But first, a question.
- 967. Supposing you want to push
in a place like Fort Knox...
- 968. and grab yourselves
a couple of tons of gold...
- 969. what's the toughest thing
about a job like that?
- 970. Getting inside the joint.
- 971. A silver dollar
for the gentleman on the balcony.
- 972. Right on the button.
- 973. Getting in.
- 974. Which brings me to a story Ma
used to tell me when I was a kid.
- 975. A story about a horse.
- 976. Way back, there was a whole army
trying to knock over a place called Troy...
- 977. and getting nowhere fast.
Couldn't even put a dent in the walls.
- 978. One morning, the people of Troy wake up,
look over the walls...
- 979. and the attacking army disappeared.
- 980. Men, boats, the works. Taking a powder.
- 981. But they left one thing after them...
- 982. a great, big wooden horse.
- 983. And according to Ma...
- 984. Hello, there.
- 985. I was wondering
if I could use your telephone?
- 986. There ain't a phone here for five miles.
- 987. I'm sorry to hear that.
- 988. - Good morning.
- Hello. Lost your way, mister?
- 989. No. I wanted to call my office...
- 990. but these gentlemen say
you don't have a phone here.
- 991. They wouldn't know. There's one
in the house. I'll show you where it is.
- 992. Thank you very much.
- 993. There's a call that's gonna cost
more than a nickel.
- 994. Looks like Big Ed's gonna have company.
- 995. And we got a new station wagon.
- 996. - How's fishing?
- Fine, Cody.
- 997. - Good catch.
- You like the truck idea?
- 998. It's admirable.
- 999. We might all profit by a closer study
of classical literature.
- 1000. Chemical plant.
I guess that's Long Beach way.
- 1001. That's close enough for now.
You know the way I work.
- 1002. I must ask that you don't insist
on knowing the exact location...
- 1003. until you've reached the rendezvous.
- 1004. That's all right.
The only thing that matters is...
- 1005. how much dough
this joint has in the kitty.
- 1006. $426,000 will be placed in their safe
before closing time tomorrow...
- 1007. to be distributed to deserving
employees the following morning...
- 1008. provided there's no unforeseen accident,
- 1009. - Like me and my boys?
- 1010. What are they doing, dancing?
- 1011. Maybe they found
they went to school together.
- 1012. Maybe they're buddies after all.
- 1013. Something funny's going on there.
- 1014. I've had my eye on this place
for several months.
- 1015. Now, these checking gates,
that means a pass for the driver...
- 1016. identity cards and stuff. We're all hot.
- 1017. Your truck will be driven
past these checkers...
- 1018. by an ex-convict of my acquaintance.
- 1019. He's now leading
a scrupulously honest life...
- 1020. as a truck driver for this very firm.
- 1021. Smooth.
- 1022. Sorry to bust in. We're finished out there.
- 1023. I'll be right out.
- 1024. - You having much luck, mister?
- I haven't started yet...
- 1025. I'm just on my way.
- 1026. - Done much fishing up here?
- Every year.
- 1027. - What are you trying for?
- 1028. - This guy's a phony, Cody.
- I beg your pardon?
- 1029. This is trout country.
There ain't bass for 100 miles.
- 1030. What's so funny?
- 1031. You're right on your toes, kid. Bass.
- 1032. He got you, didn't he?
- 1033. Trader, this is the kid I've been telling
you about. Meet Vic Pardo.
- 1034. - Hello.
- Glad to know you, Mr...
- 1035. Forgive me, l...
- 1036. You can forget that.
Vic's my partner, 50-50.
- 1037. Cody Jarrett going 50-50?
- 1038. - I split even with Ma, didn't l?
- I see.
- 1039. My name's Daniel Winston.
San Diego. Securities.
- 1040. Glad to know you, Mr. Winston.
- 1041. Sit down.
- 1042. Hold it. Where you going, Pardo?
- 1043. - What's doing, kid?
- I don't like being pushed around.
- 1044. My orders was nobody was to leave.
- 1045. That might go for hoods like him.
When I got a reason to leave, I leave.
- 1046. Nobody has any reasons
I don't know about.
- 1047. - He jumped me, Cody.
- Get back on the job.
- 1048. That was pretty fancy wrestling, kid.
Where'd you learn it?
- 1049. - In the army.
- You're a liar.
- 1050. They don't take cons in the army.
- 1051. When the war broke out,
I didn't have any record except kid stuff.
- 1052. What were you doing just now, soldier?
Going over the hill?
- 1053. No. I figured maybe I'd run in to L.A.
- 1054. Be back before anyone knew.
- 1055. - What's doing in L.A.?
- My wife. She don't know where I am.
- 1056. When we crashed out,
I didn't leave no forwarding address.
- 1057. - It's the truth, Cody.
- Why didn't you ask me?
- 1058. I figured you might get sore.
- 1059. So you took off on your own.
- 1060. I haven't seen her in a long time.
- 1061. I'm human, you know, like everyone else.
- 1062. All right, kid.
- 1063. You're just lonesome.
- 1064. Lonesome like me.
- 1065. You?
- 1066. - What about...
- You mean Verna?
- 1067. All I ever had was Ma. Now...
- 1068. Your mother alive?
- 1069. No, she died before I even knew her.
- 1070. I was just walking around out there
talking to mine.
- 1071. - That sounds funny to you?
- 1072. Some might think so.
- 1073. My old lady never had anything.
- 1074. Always on the run, always on the move.
- 1075. First, it was my old man, died kicking
and screaming in a nut house...
- 1076. then my brother,
and after that, it was taking care of me.
- 1077. Always trying to put me on top.
- 1078. "Top of the world," she used to say.
- 1079. And then,
times when I'd be losing my grip...
- 1080. there she'd be, right behind me...
- 1081. pushing me back up again. And now...
- 1082. Anyway, she quit running, Cody.
- 1083. Yeah. Quit running.
- 1084. That was a good feeling out there,
talking to her.
- 1085. Just me and Ma.
- 1086. A good feeling. I liked it.
- 1087. Maybe I am nuts.
- 1088. Let's go in and have a drink.
- 1089. Tell you what, Vic. I've got an idea.
- 1090. We'll pick up your wife
after the job tomorrow.
- 1091. We'll all take a little trip.
Just the four of us.
- 1092. No kidding, Cody. That sounds great.
- 1093. You mean that, honey?
We could have fun. Live big.
- 1094. Money's just paper if you don't spend it.
- 1095. - That's an idea.
- It's a good idea.
- 1096. Europe, maybe. Paris.
- 1097. Rubbing shoulders with the best of them.
- 1098. How do you do, Countess?
- 1099. Sable coats,
jewels just dripping from my fingers.
- 1100. I'd knock their eyes out, Cody.
You'd be real proud of me.
- 1101. Don't go flipping your lid.
- 1102. He ain't thought of a vacation
in years, Vic. Don't let him forget it.
- 1103. Here's to us, top of the world.
- 1104. How's the radio coming, Verna?
- 1105. - A crystal set would play better.
- 1106. Maybe I could fix it for you.
- 1107. I wish you would, Vic.
I'm dead without music.
- 1108. We'll get a new one.
- 1109. I don't mind fixing it, Cody.
Keep me busy. I can't sleep anyhow.
- 1110. Anything you say, kid.
- 1111. - I was just gonna throw it away.
- I'm not making any promises.
- 1112. We better hit the hay, Duchess.
We got a heavy day tomorrow.
- 1113. - See you in the morning.
- 1114. Grab the brass ring.
- 1115. What are you doing? We're on our way.
- 1116. You've got to have a chain on the ground,
get rid of electricity.
- 1117. That's only when you got
gasoline or chemicals inside.
- 1118. You want to have some traffic cop
think you got a load of something else?
- 1119. That's using your head, kid.
All right, snap it up.
- 1120. You all know what you're to do...
- 1121. and you know where the rendezvous is.
- 1122. We're to pick up our driver there at 5:00...
- 1123. and we'll be at the plant
right after the day shift has checked off.
- 1124. Now, Vic and Tommy, we go in the truck.
- 1125. The rest of you go
with Verna in the sedan.
- 1126. Baby, don't get picked up for speeding.
- 1127. But get them there.
- 1128. Don't worry, honey. I'll get them there.
- 1129. $12,000 and she's getting ready
to blow up in your face.
- 1130. Might be a cracked radiator.
We'd better stop somewhere.
- 1131. There's a gas station down the hill, Cody.
- 1132. Pull in and watch yourself.
- 1133. Fill her up?
- 1134. - With water, bub. Check that radiator.
- 1135. - You got a washroom, mister?
- Yeah. Cleanest in the West.
- 1136. Dry as a bone.
- 1137. Go get Vic. Hurry up.
- 1138. - Cody says to hurry up.
- All right.
- 1139. I thought you said cleanest in the West.
- 1140. You ever see a cleaner one, mister?
- 1141. - The mirror's so dirty you can see double.
- 1142. Wise guys. Didn't even buy gas.
- 1143. Into the wooden horse, boys.
- 1144. Where do we go, Trader?
- 1145. You should be back in about three hours.
- 1146. - I'll wait.
- We'll be here. Where's the driver?
- 1147. He's having a cup of coffee.
He'll be right out.
- 1148. Bo. I heard you wanted to straighten out.
Driving a truck for a living.
- 1149. - Tonight, I hand in my resignation.
- You better get going, Cody. Good luck.
- 1150. Got it?
- 1151. When you get to the plant,
park across the street.
- 1152. if there's any trouble,
give us the horn hard.
- 1153. How is it in there?
- 1154. Can't breathe good. Otherwise, fine.
- 1155. Stop breathing.
- 1156. There's a button up in the cab.
- 1157. Press it once if trouble shows,
and three times for all clear.
- 1158. Okay.
- 1159. Somebody's ribbing you, Russ.
- 1160. Take a slant
at the mirror in your washroom.
- 1161. "Radio Signal Fallon."
You know what that means, sir?
- 1162. You bet I know what it means. It's Hank.
- 1163. Call the FCC.
Get every direction-finder car they've got.
- 1164. Ask them to clear the air. Now listen...
- 1165. Got him.
- 1166. This is Car A at La Canada Verdugo.
- 1167. Receiving signal, 105 degrees. Will repeat.
- 1168. 105 degrees.
- 1169. Check.
- 1170. - Come in, Car B.
- Car B bearing 284 degrees.
- 1171. Maine and Atlantic, Alhambra.
General direction, southwest.
- 1172. Check.
- 1173. Source of signal,
Maine and Atlantic in Alhambra.
- 1174. - General direction, southwest.
- Head southwest.
- 1175. Have Car B head southeast.
- 1176. Car A at Western and Slauson,
bearing 158 degrees.
- 1177. Car B, Atlantic and Telegraph Road...
- 1178. bearing 235 degrees.
- 1179. Imperial and Figueroa.
- 1180. Source of signal, Imperial and Figueroa.
- 1181. That looks like the Long Beach area.
- 1182. Car A at Rosecrans and Western,
bearing 156 degrees.
- 1183. Car B at Atlantic and Compton,
bearing 244 degrees.
- 1184. Source of signal, 198th and Figueroa.
- 1185. 198th and Figueroa.
- 1186. Cover the back.
- 1187. Car A at 166th and Western,
bearing 138 degrees.
- 1188. Car B Alameda and Artesia,
bearing 256 degrees.
- 1189. Same as before. 198th and Figueroa.
- 1190. They must have stopped.
198th and Figueroa.
- 1191. - Check. 198th and Figueroa.
- That's it.
- 1192. Send out a call.
All cars proceed to 198th and Figueroa.
- 1193. Drop the gun.
- 1194. Now turn around.
- 1195. - Cody, that guy's a copper.
- 1196. He's a T-man. I know him.
His name is Fallon.
- 1197. He pinched me four years ago.
- 1198. Don't go for your guns.
- 1199. A copper.
- 1200. A copper. How do you like that, boys?
- 1201. A copper and his name is Fallon.
- 1202. And we went for it. I went for it.
- 1203. Treated him like a kid brother.
- 1204. And I was going to split 50-50
with a copper.
- 1205. Maybe they're waiting
to pin a medal on him.
- 1206. Solid gold.
Come on. Get up. Get your hands up.
- 1207. Yeah, that's it.
A nice gold medal for the copper.
- 1208. Only maybe he's gonna get it
sooner than he thinks.
- 1209. Cody, the joint's crawling with cops.
- 1210. - Let him have it.
- Oh, no. And lose our ace in the hole?
- 1211. He's going to walk us out of here.
Ain't you, copper? Get up.
- 1212. It won't work. They'll shoot just the same.
- 1213. - They won't shoot one of their own.
- They won't make any deals.
- 1214. You better pray that they do.
- 1215. Jarrett, you and your men
might as well give up.
- 1216. Come out with your hands up.
- 1217. We've got your boy Fallon in here,
and he'll be all right if you do as I say.
- 1218. She says she can get Jarrett to come out.
- 1219. if I can, mister, will you go easy on me?
- 1220. I'll tell him you'll let him get away
because you don't want your guy hurt.
- 1221. He'll believe me. Then, when he comes
out, you can do what you want with him.
- 1222. No deal. Lock her up.
- 1223. Cheap copper!
- 1224. Jarrett, you haven't got a chance.
- 1225. Come out with your hands up.
- 1226. "Come out with your hands up,"
the man says.
- 1227. How do you like that, Ma?
- 1228. Here's my answer, you dirty...
- 1229. Fan out! Give them
tear gas from both sides.
- 1230. That was Cody Jarrett talking!
- 1231. Out this way, Cody. Through that door.
- 1232. Here's yours, copper.
- 1233. Wait a minute. It's Fallon.
- 1234. - You all right, Hank?
- Yeah, sure. Quick...
- 1235. get a car out to Charlie's Roadhouse,
Highway 60, near Colton.
- 1236. Pick up Daniel Winston.
He's the fence you're looking for.
- 1237. - What's out here, Bo?
- An alley.
- 1238. Happy, try it.
- 1239. Come on. Get going.
- 1240. We've got Bo Creel. They're heading up.
- 1241. Got them on the ground
