Description
A gripping account of rampant crime in Fort Worth, Texas during the 1930s, through the 1950s, with hoodlums, gamblers, murderers, dopers, pimps and lawmen on the take. While Fort Worth, Texas, is well known as a wild and wooly town with a wild west image, it was even wilder in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, with an organized crime and gambling scene that would rival early Las Vegas. Characters such as Benny Binion, Herbert Noble, Tincy Eggleston and Gene Paul Norris were larger than life and their exploits and deeds would rival that of any Hollywood film noir.
