The chase was furious--the capture was rapacious--the prize was luscious!
When Richard Hudson turns from a used car salesman to a movieland producer, his interests swing to this year's model--sleek, trim lines, an eye-catching front and a well curved rear--then the chase is on!
There are only so many hours in a day, and one salesman, no matter how good he is, can only sell so many cars in one day. My earning capacity as a salesman had been reached. It was necessary to either become a partner with Honest Hal Parker or leave him altogether and establish my own business. Honest Hal wanted it both ways so he took the road in the middle. Sensing my restlessness, Insider Hal handed me a golden deal on a platter.
For several months Honest Hal had wanted to expand. He too, was aware of the American way of life. An outlet and inlet was needed in Los Angeles to get rid of the cars that didn't move in San Francisco due to the discrimination that comes with the heavier paycheck of the San Franciscans--I've explained that--and to replace cars that were needed for his big lot. And a new big lot in Los Angeles would enhance Honest Hal's prestige.
By establishing a new lot in Los Angeles with a trustworthy hot-shot in command, namely me, Richard Hudson, these birds could be stoned.
