| A Strange Take On Reality
According to the credits, this is a true story, but with the names, locations and events changed.

Huh? In this case, the White actor is Frank DeKova, whose best known role was as an Indian chief on F TROOP. The movie is about Paul Harris, who runs a numbers racket, with the Mafia (referred to as "Chicago") muscling in and a mayoral election putting the pressure on. It's a potentially interesting idea, but the story is told in a disjointed fashion, with many scenes of people writing numbers in spiral notebooks. Frances Williams as the drug connection is amusing and Reginald Farmer as a street runner "Sweetman" might be interesting, but he wanders in and out.
