My series of stories here, entitled Whatever Happened to Yvonne LeDoux? are derived from a 1950 noir, starring Charles McGraw as Lieutenant Jim Cordell, Adele Jergens as Mrs. Benny McBride (Yvonne LeDoux), William Talman as Dave Purvis, Douglas Fowleyas Benny McBride, Steve Brodie as Al Mapes, Don McGuire as Detective Danny Ryan, Don Haggerty as detective driving final pursuit car, James Flavin as Lieutenant Phillips, and Gene Evans as William ‘Ace’ Foster. Directed by Richard Fleischer.
I allowed myself to imagine what might have happened to the woman who got away, after the robbery, and where she might be.
You might call it a sequel, like Rocky, Rocky2, etc.
Los Angeles 1952
The place was barely respectable. When I walked in – it was about four pm – it looked haunted, old men in raincoats, pretty shabby, mostly bums. One bright guy was busy with something under his coat, but I didn’t want to know. There was a hefty woman near the front, who started yelling at the stripper: “Take it off! Take it all off. Let’s see what you got, honey!”
Her comments were met with shouts of derision. Someone called out: “Butch!”
