Description
 
Chicagoland, 1950. Rudy Winston is ďa good man to know.Ē Wanna meet some tough guys or showgirls or boxers? Thatís who Rudy pals around with. Rudy could probably introduce ya to class types like Dorothy Lamour & even Al Caponeís brother. He knows the right people, know whad I mean? Barry Giffordís father, a racketeer who ran an all-night liquor store in the 1950s, is memorialized in this unsentimental series of vignettes that capture the reckless glitz of mob-run Chicago. Gifford grew up in the midst of Rudy Winstonís world with its roster of lowlife characters, shadowy dealings, & high living. His childís perspective on the streetwise standards of the day reveal a world of compelling emotion & sinewy American beauty.
