Synopsis Prohibition-era America may have left drinkers high and dry, but it was full speed ahead for 1930's gangsters! In this action-packed comedy, screen legend Jack Palance plays it for laughs as eccentric mob boss and bootlegger Vic Morono who owns a nightspot called The Four Deuces. It also happens to be the name of his gang of thugs: Chip Morono, the Deuce of Clubs, Mickey Navarro, the Deuce of Spades, Ben Arlen, the Deuce of Hearts, and Smokey Ross, the Deuce of Diamonds. Collectively, they are The Four Deuces! Boss Morono spends his evenings at the nightclub romancing high-society beauty Wendy Rittenhouse, and lovely songbird Lory Rogers. Morono's only business rival is Chico Hamilton, owner of The High Hat Club. When Morono and his gang hijack a truckload of illegal "bathtub gin" belonging to hamilton, he retaliates with a hail of bullets directed at Morono's nightclub. While the two crime bosses agree to bury the hatchet at a hilarious "peace conference," an arson-loving member of The Four Deuces turns Hamilton's club into a blazing inferno. The Mobsters have even more tricks up their sleeves as the rivalry erupts into a full-blown gang war!
