NARR:

Good evening, GANGBUSTERS listeners. One of the most daring criminals in Massachusetts history is a man named Theodore Green?a well-educated, soft-spoken short-tempered thief in his late thirties, a native of Boston. Green has always had a very practical goal in life...

GREEN:

Money. Money's everything. Man's best friend, you might say. Trouble was, when I was a kid I didn't have enough of it. But I took care of that.

NARR:

He certainly did. Theodore Green went after money methodically, in the most logical places...

GREEN:

Banks?small, suburban banks. They don't have the protection gimmicks and the armored guard set-ups you find in the big cities. No, I'll take small-town banks anytime.

ANNCR:

To bring you tonight's report, GANGBUSTERS has asked Lewis J. Whiteman, former Special Assistant to the Attorney General, United States Department of Justice, Criminal Division, to narrate the Case of the Massachusetts Planner. Please continue, Mr. Whiteman---

NARR:

It was during the summer of 1951 that Theodore Green started going after banks in a big way. His first move was to contact another highly skilled professional, Larry Brown. They met in the town of South Norwood, near Boston...

SOUND:

ROLLER SEATING RINK IN USE, UNDER

LARRY:

I don't get it, Ted. Why'd you set the meet here,--in a roller skating rink?

GREEN:

Maybe I like roller skating.

LARRY:

Only I know you don't. You don't go in for exercise at all.

GREEN:

It's a waste of time.

LARRY:

Oh, I don't know.

GREEN:

It's a waste of time! (beat) So's beating around the bush this way.

LARRY:

(REASONABLY) Then let's get with it. What's on your mind, Ted?

GREEN:

Come over to the window

SOUND:

FOOTSTEPS ACROSS WOODEN FLOOR

GREEN:

Look, Larry. Across the street, over to the right.

LARRY:

Yeah? Oh, the bank. I've been in it, Ted. That's not an easy one, unless you know something about it that I don't.

GREEN:

I'm planning to know a lot more before I take it.

LARRY:

You'll need some help.

GREEN:

Just the two of us. If you're interested.

LARRY:

I'm interested.

GREEN:

(BEAT) How're you fixed for cash?

LARRY:

Why do you think I'm interested? I've got the shorts.

GREEN:

Here's a hundred.

LARRY:

Thanks. But what for?

GREEN:

I want you to rent a room...upstairs, right about this skating rink.

LARRY:

To case the deal?

GREEN:

That's right.

LARRY:

You don't care how you spend your dough, do you? Rooms here don't cost more'n ten bucks a week.

GREEN:

Get the monthly rate, Larry. You're going to be here some time. When I plan a deal, I plan it.

LARRY:

OK. It's your money.

GREEN:

Then start using it. On your way, boy.

LARRY:

I'll see you around?

GREEN:

Uh-huh. (IMPATIENT) Get going.

LARRY:

Oh. Still at it, huh?

GREEN:

What do you mean?

LARRY:

That chick who's tending to the music. You ain't taken your eye off her since we started chinning.

GREEN:

Huh? (OFF-HAND) Oh, yeah. Nice-looking kid.

LARRY:

(DRILY) Too bad you're going to b e so busy on our deal.

GREEN:

Yes. It is too bad. So long, Larry

LARRY:

So long. (FADING OFF)

SOUND:

FOOTSTEPS ON WOOD

MUSIC:

LOUDER, AS GREEN APPROACHES

GREEN:

Hi. What's the name of that piece? I always liked it.

ANN:

(SMILE) (name of tune) My name is Ann. I work here from twelve-noon to six PM, six days a week. And I'm busy every evening. Any other questions?

GREEN:

You can't be busy every evening.

ANN:

I sure am. Starting tomorrow I play fill-in piano at the Mocambo, nights. Between shows.

GREEN:

It's a small world?like they say.

ANN:

What's that mean? You know the place?

GREEN:

Maybe. A girl looks like you, Ann, shouldn't have to work at all.

ANN:

Oh, come on, Mister?you can do better than that.

GREEN:

Not here, I can't.

ANN:

You know where to find me.

GREEN:

That's right. I think I will.

MUSIC:

UP AND OUT

NARR:

Meantime, Ted Green's sharp=eyed partner, Larry Bowen, moved into a room above the skating-rink, Gangbusters listeners. Its one window became an observation post which he manned from early morning to late afternoon, day in and day out. Within a short time, he thought himself completely familiar with the traffic pattern in and out of the South Norwood Bank, and was spoiling for action.

DOOR OPENING AND CLOSING

GREEN:

Hello, Larry.

LARRY:

Hi ya, Ted. About time.

GREEN:

How're we doing?

LARRY:

I got the picture. Got it cold. Thursday's the big day. That's when they get in the money from the main office in Boston. You know, for the Friday payrolls.

GREEN:

What time Thursday?

LARRY:

Between two-ten and two-forty. I got it all marked down on this pad, see?

GREEN:

Good work, Larry.

LARRY:

What about you? How're you doing with the inside stuff?

GREEN:

I've been making some progress.

LARRY:

Some? It's been three weeks, Ted.

GREEN:

I'm in no hurry.

LARRY:

I am, buster. I don't get much charge cooped up here, over the roller skating rink.

GREEN:

It's better than being cooped up in a cell, Larry. That's just where you'll end up ? if we move before we're ready.

LARRY:

What's so tricky about this set-up? You blueprinted the inside of the bank a week ago. The way I see it, we walk in there next Thursday, snatch the money?

GREEN (CUTTING IN) There's more to a bank heist than snatching loot.

LARRY:

Yeah?

GREEN:

Yes. Getting away with it. That's what I've been concentrating on the past week. I must have cruised every street within five miles of the bank.

LARRY:

What? I figured we'd lam out along Elwood Avenue, cut into South Ditmas?and take it from there.

GREEN(FLAT) South Ditmas turns into a dead-end exactly a mile and on eighth from here.

LARRY:

Yeah?

GREEN:

Yes, Larry. Better leave the brain-work on this deal to me.

LARRY:

But speed it up, huh? This sitting around is for the birds.

GREEN:

Think I'm enjoying myself? Look, maybe we ought to call it quits right now.

LARRY:

Now, take it easy, Ted. I didn't mean anything. Honest.

GREEN:

All right, Larry. Just watch it.

NARR:

Perhaps it was true, Gangbusters listeners, that Theodore Green wasn't enjoying himself, while working out the details of robbing the South Norwood Bank...but it hadn't seemed that way for the past two weeks, to the fill-in pianist at the Mocambo Club...

SOUND:

MUSIC - PIANO?BLUES?SOFTLY. LOW NIGHTCLUB NOISES

GREEN:

Hiya, Ann. How's it going tonight?

ANN:

Better. Now that you're here.

GREEN:

That's my girl.

ANN:

Am I?

GREEN:

Don't you worry about Gladys, honey. She's an old, old friend. She's just for laughs. Like a clown.

ANN:

Yes. (BEAT) The clown's on her way onto the floor now. Get set to laugh.

GREEN:

Honey, all I'm going to do is dance with her a few times. Till you're through. Believe me.

ANN:

I shouldn't.

GREEN:

See you after the show?per usual?

ANN:

Per usual.

SOUND:

PIANO UP AND THROUGH

NARR:

Yes, bank-robber Theodore Green played just as hard as he worked, and he applied the same basic principle to the pursuit of pleasure as to the pursuit of cash: never let your left hand know what your right hand's doing...

SOUND:

NARR:

The left hand, in this case, was the star of the Mocambo show, Gladys.

GLADYS:

Gosh, Ted, you certainly know how to dance.

GREEN:

Thanks. Didn't see how you stand it, Gladys, doing three shows a night...and slugging it out on the floor with me, in between.

GLADYS:

Go on, Ted. I know it's a line, but I love it.

GREEN:

Don't be so sure it's a line.

GLADYS:

(MOCKINGLY) You've never met anybody like me before, have you?

GREEN:

is that what I said last week?

GLADYS:

That's what you said.

GREEN (KIDDING) One of these days, I might prove it to you.

GLADYS:

When?

GREEN:

Oh, I don't know?next Thursday, maybe.

SOUND:

GLADYS:

Let's give the dancing a rest, huh?

FOOTSTEPS ACROSS FLOOR, SEATING THEMSELVES

GLADYS:

(POINTEDLY) Well?what's going to happen on Thursday?

GREEN:

What?

GLADYS:

You said that maybe you were going to prove something to me on Thursday. (PAUSE) Come on, Ted. You can tell me.

GREEN:

Can I?

GLADYS:

You'll never have to worry, Ted, as long as you play it straight with me. I told you that the first night I met you. (BEAT) Well?

GREEN:

Oh, let's forget it.

GLADYS:

No. What's happening Thursday?

GREEN:

I'm leaving town.

GLADYS:

(STARTLED) Where are you going?

GREEN:

I don't know. Out west. Chicago maybe.

GLADYS:

I like Chicago.

GREEN:

What?

GLADYS:

Tell me when and where you want me to meet you. Please, Ted.

GREEN:

I?I'll think about it. (BEAT) Right now, though, I have to shove off.

GLADYS:

Now? It's early yet.

GREEN:

Sorry, honey. Something I have to do.

GLADYS:

What?

GREEN:

Don't worry. It's not a late date.

GLADYS (PAUSE) I'll see you again before Thursday?

GREEN:

You'll see me. Good night, baby.

GLADYS:

Good night.

NARR:

Theodore Green lied as glibly to his girl friends as to his business associates, Gangbusters listeners. But Green had no thought of trouble on that score, as he continued his careful preparations for the robbery. Finally, on Thursday, September 13th, he decided he was ready.

LARRY:

Morning, Ted.

GREEN:

hello, Larry. It's almost noon, you know.

LARRY:

Tell me something I don't know. I've been looking out this window at that bank since nine a.m.

GREEN:

See anything?

LARRY:

Nothing I haven't told you about twenty times already. Nothing ever happens till around two o'clock.

GREEN:

But then things start popping?

LARRY:

Like I told you. When they bring the money in from the main office...for the Friday payrolls.

GREEN:

They aren't going to be able to meet the payrolls tomorrow.

LARRY:

Oh, so we're finally going to roll?

GREEN:

Today's the day, Larry. Come on.

LARRY:

But it isn't time yet...

SOUND:

NOON FACTORY WHISTLES

LARRY:

There?that's the noon whistle.

GREEN:

I hear it.

LARRY:

Ted, the bank's just across the street. What are you going to do for two hours?

GREEN:

well, I thought we'd get ourselves some lunch.

LARRY:

Only takes me half an hour to eat lunch.

GREEN:

Right. That's exactly what I've allowed on my timetable. Thirty minutes for lunch.

LARRY:

What do we do with the other hour and a half?

GREEN:

I figure it'll take us that long to get into Boston, steal a car, and get back here.

LARRY:

If something goes wrong with that timetable of yours, we'll be dead for another week.

GREEN:

Things don't go wrong on my jobs, Larry. Let's go.

SOUND:

OSCILLATOR

ANNCR:

Back to Gangbusters in a moment.

ANNCR:

We're making gains in our battle against polio...but let's keep our guard up. That guard depends on your contributions. Today?we begin extending our defenses against polio by opening a special March of Dimes. Get in step. Contribute to the March of Dimes in your town.

ANNCR:

And now back to Gangbusters and Mr. Lewis J Whiteman, former Special Assistant to the United States Attorney General.

NARR:

Well, Gangbusters listeners, bank-robber Theodore Green proved to Larry Bowen that he knew just what he was talking about. Right after lunch that Thursday, September 13the, 1951, they proceeded to a parking lot in the Ashmont section of Boston. There they stole a high-powered sedan which happened to catch Green's fancy?and in it they headed for their target, the South Norwood Bank...

SOUND:

AUTOMOBILE DRIVIING THROUGH TRAFFIC

LARRY:

Got to hand it to you, Ted. Neat.

GREEN:

on schedule, too.

LARRY:

Hope everything else goes on schedule.

GREEN:

It will, if you slow down.

LARRY:

You want to get to the bank about two twenty, don't you?

GREEN:

We won't if you get us picked up for speeding. Cut down to forty, Larry. We can make it easily at that speed.

LARRY:

Yeah? (HONESTLY CONVINCED) All right, if you say so. (PAUSE) Hey! You remember to bring those wooden hoods?

GREEN:

Yes. And the paper bags for the money. This isn't my first stunt, Larry. When I make a plan, I make sure of everything.

NARR:

At precisely two-eighteen that afternoon, Larry parked the big sedan on a side street just around the corner from the South Norwood Bank. The two men got out of the car and walked casually around the corner into the bank. As they stepped inside, they slipped knitted hoods over their faces and drew their guns.

GREEN:

(OFF) Hand out that money.

LARRY:

Soon as I find it. Mister, you gonna tell me where that dough is, or do I have to use this thing?

I can't tell you! It's not here. It?

Ted, can't you drive a little faster?

GREEN:

Sure, but I'm not going to. They enforce the speed limit on this road. I checked it.

LARRY:

What about my hand?

GREEN:

We'll stop at the next drugstore we come to. It's almost stopped bleeding now, anyway. Hasn't it?

LARRY:

Suppose it gets infected?

GREEN:

I'm sure it won't.

LARRY:

You're pretty sure of everything, aren't you?

GREEN:

I haven't been wrong so far.

LARRY:

I still can't believe it. The way we managed to get away so easy.

GREEN:

Because I cased the whole area for three months. It was hard work, too.

LARRY:

Yeah...when you worked.

GREEN:

What's that supposed to mean?

LARRY:

Nothing. It's just that I heard the only work you did?nights, that is?was with a doll at the Mocambo.

GREEN:

What doll?

LARRY:

Doll called Gladys.

GREEN:

She didn't interfere with this job any, did she?

LARRY:

No. Not so far. But I heard that you were going to have her join you in Chicago.

GREEN (SHARP) Is that what you heard? How?

LARRY:

She's a doll. Dolls have friends. They tell 'em things. Especially when they think they got a guy hooked. (BEAT) But...it ain't so, huh?

GREEN:

What am I, a kid? You think I knocked myself out on this heist, to give Gladys a vacation in Chicago?

LARRY:

You were just handing her a line? Brother, is she going to burn...

What can she do about it?

ANN:

No. It's just that I have to take off first thing tomorrow?For Springfield, Illinois. My brother took sick.

GLADYS:

Didn't know you had a brother.

ANN:

Oh, yes. Say, you want me to help you get ready?

GLADYS:

I'm ready. Only I feel so punk. And so darned mad.

ANN:

How come? Ted giving you a bad time?

GLADYS:

Yeah.

ANN:

Hmmm.. he looks like such a nice guy.

GLADYS:

He looked like such a nice guy. Ann...he walked out on me.

ANN:

Honest? He must be crazy!

GLADYS:

He is, if he thinks he can get away with it.

ANN:

Oh, what's the good of that, honey? Life's too short.

GLADYS:

He's going to wish it's a lot shorter. You know what I found out, Ann? He's had some other girl on the string?all along.

ANN:

You don't know who, do you?

GLADYS:

No. At first I thought it was you?

ANN:

Gladys! Would I pull a trick like that?

GLADYS:

No, I guess not. But Ted liked you.

ANN:

Oh, come on, Gladys?that was nothing.

GLADYS:

I...I thought he was on the level with me.

ANN:

Now you know.

GLADYS:

Yes. Now I know. (BEAT) Ann, do me a favor, will you?

ANN:

Sure, honey. What?

GLADYS:

Tell them to hold off on my number for a few minutes.

ANN:

Sure. Want to freshen up before you go on?

GLADYS:

That's right. I won't be a minute.

ANN:

Take your time. Joint's practically empty tonight. Account of the robbery yesterday, I guess. Nobody's getting paid until Monday (EXITING) See you.

GREEN:

Gladys? Who's that? (THEY BOTH LAUGH)

LARRY:

Say, Ted, you want to know something? You're one smart cookie. And just as lucky as you're smart.

GREEN:

What? We're here in Chicago now, living like this, because I planned it. Every step of the way. Luck is for suckers. To succeed in this life, you've got to have a plan?and you have to follow it.

LARRY:

And when you do, nothing goes wrong?

GREEN:

Never, Larry. It never goes wrong.

NARR:

"Never" is a very large word, Gangbusters listeners. Perhaps bank-robber Theodore Green meant to say, as the Admiral in "Pinafore" did, "Hardly ever." Because Green's perfect plan had one little flaw...

GREEN:

That doesn't mean I'll be behind the walls for twenty-five years.

JOE:

We'll see about that.

GREEN:

We certainly will.

NARR:

And so, Gangbusters listeners, the F.B.I. arrested bank-robber Theodore Green. He and his associate Larry Bowen were tried, found guilty, and sentenced to long terms in prison. But from the minute he was arrested, Theodore Green began developing new plans. Plans to escape. Oddly enough, he met with a startling measure of success. For a time.
