Beware the Black Widow


1970       Sharon Kent

Teaser Storyline for Beware the Black Widow

The leader of the Mafia is involved in a number of sordid activities, including prostitution, gambling, drugs, and the running of a burlesque house. His situation is getting worse from day to day. First, his mistress, who is also the queen of his burlesque house, is jealous of the other girls and threatens to expose his underworld connections. Secondly, the police seem to be closing in on the gang. Finally, a series of murders by a mysterious killer known as "the Black Widow," who wears a long black dress and mourning veil, has been diminishing the Mafia ranks.

When the boyfriend of one of the call girls is killed in an alley, both a reporter and the editor of a crusading newspaper decide to investigate the crime, hoping to uncover the entire gangster operation. The reporter has a friend in Chinatown who is assisting with the detective work.

One of the other call girls agrees to tell her story of involvement with the gang

to the reporter. She reveals that she and her mother had fled from Italy several years before, after she was raped by one of four racketeers who are now also in America. At the time of the rape, her young Italian boyfriend was severely scarred by these gangsters, who burned his face with a torch. He also came to the United States, vowing to avenge himself one day by killing his four attackers.

During the Chinese New Year celebration, the reporter and his Chinese friend manage to lure the Mafia chief to a curio shop in Chinatown. They hope that he will incriminate himself so that they can obtain the needed evidence against him. The Black Widow appears at the store and is killed in the ensuing struggle. When the veil is lifted from the Black Widow's face, it turns out to be none other than the revenge-seeking boyfriend.

At this point, one of the Mafia henchmen reveals his true identity as an undercover police agent and arrests the leader and his stooges.

The reporter and the girl who gave him the first lead which helped him solve the case discover that they are in love and leave to make a new life, away from memories of the past.
