520    The story takes place in a mysterious underworld of swanky
       nightclubs where armed criminals listen to Rat Pack music 
       and hold shootouts from a seated position, behind desks.  
       Mickey Holiday is the top enforcer for Vic, the mob boss. 
       Vic is about to be released from a psychiatric facility, 
       or, as his adversary Jake Parker puts it, "the loony bin."
       In his absence, Ben London has been running Vic's 
       nightclub while Mickey has been romancing both Rita and 
       Grace Everly, which is doubly dangerous inasmuch as they 
       are sisters and Grace was previously Vic's girl.  Parker 
       recruits a number of hired guns in an attempt to seize 
       power. Mickey kills the first to challenge him, Lee 
       Turner. The next one brought in by Parker, identified as 
       Nicholas Falco and supposedly the fastest draw of all, 
       murders Mickey's close friend, Jules Flamingo, who is 
       unarmed. A showdown is arranged and Mickey ends up 
       eliminating both Parker and the apparently overrated 
       Falco.  Vic returns to resume his reign as mob boss. He 
       brings with him a new enforcer, the "real" Nicholas Falco,
       the previous one having been an impostor.  "Brass Balls" 
       Ben London promptly challenges Vic for control of the 
       organization (while singing "My Way" on stage in the 
       nightclub) and is shot dead. Falco proceeds to gun down 
       the remaining opposition, including "Wacky" Jackie Jackson,
       and is eager to shoot it out with Mickey Holiday once and 
       for all.  Mickey attempts to repair his relationship with 
       Rita, who is furious that he has been seeing her sister on
       the side. Mickey finally confesses to Grace that he has 
       been seeing her in the daytime and Rita at night. She also
       has been unaware that Vic is back in town.  At a final 
       confrontation held in a private office, Grace reveals that
       she is pregnant with Vic's child. Forced to choose between
       Holiday and Falco before they shoot it out, Vic sides with
       his old friend and Grace kills Falco. He and Mickey end up
       (apparently) living happily ever after with the Everly
