Premise:
"This one-hour series is all about the good old Prohibition days of rum-runners and racoon coats. Rex Reason
and Donald May play reporters Scott Norris and Pat Garrison, and Dorothy Provine plays Pinky Pinkham, who sings
and dances at the "Charleston Club" in New York. The series had the use of the famous Warner backlot that had
been used for their classic 30's-40's gangster films. Also the catchiest songs of the period sung by Dorothy Provine.
