Dark Manhattan: "On the tough back streets of Harlem, thugs and crooks fight for control of the numbers racket. One small time hood, 'Curly' Thorpe, is enlisted by the biggest mob boss in town. Larry B. Lee, to be his protege. Curly takes over the operation, bringing a new level of brutality and greed to Lennox Avenue. Beautiful women, fast cars and hard cash are all that Curly cares about, but he steps on the wrong toes to get them. Tougher men than Curly now want him dead"--Packaging.
