Flash Card 016

Albert Salmi

Shtick: Reliable Goon.

He’s the guy sitting in the truck, chewing his gum, checking the mirrors and sweating it out while the rest of the crew pulls off the heist. He’s the cowpoke on the split-rail fence who marks the hero’s arrival with a bluntly suspicious glance and a threatening remark. He’s sometimes the fall guy but never the stoolie.

He’ll hold the gun but not take the shot. He’d be a torpedo but he doesn’t really have the guts for it. Because he’s not really the killer… just the goon.
