Earle: Yes. Surprise, surprise.
Phelps: A blonde woman just came in here.
Bookmaker: She went out the back way. Said she was being watched.
Phelps: How much did she collect?
Bookmaker: Thirty six hundred dollars. She cleaned me out.
Phelps: On the Hammond - Kid Galahad fight?
Bookmaker: You got it. I'm not complaining, we all made a lot money on that one. Huge plunge on Galahad and then Hammond knocks the bum out.
Phelps: So she collected the money and went out through the back door?
Bookmaker: Nope. She made a phone call over there, wrote something on a notepad, and then left.
Earle: What are you doing?
Phelps: An old intelligence trick from the Marines. We know where she's headed. Let's get moving.
KGPL: Car 11K, 11K. Further to your request, Bunco-Fraud has three known bookmakers operating out of storefronts in the Hollywood area. Thrifty Liquor, 6106 Santa Monica, the Examiner Drugstore, and a Mack's Spirits, at 1658 North Cherokee. KGPL all clear.
Earle: Hammond backed himself to win.
Phelps: And Candy is picking up the winnings. Smart play. Question is, is Candy collecting on Albert's behalf, or is she cheating him too?
