Ep 113 - Fogtown - Show Notes

It’s Pride month again, so its time for: Pride 2: Electric Boogaloo

This Week: A gritty, graphic pulp fiction about the temptation, damnation and redemption of aging private eye Frank Grissel.

Frank Grissel is a hard-knuckled private eye – and a deeply closeted homosexual, set in the very real world of 1953 San Francisco. Aided by his long-suffering secretary (and sometime live-in lover) Loretta, Grissel’s search for a runaway girl winds up with him becoming a suspect in a string of gruesome murders. The case takes twists and turns through the Golden Gate’s greasy underbelly: the beguiling arms of Chinese shipping heiress (and smuggler); an unexpected reunion with the daughter he abandoned long ago; the loss of Loretta to the sadistic clutches of the high-powered “Colonel;” and finally the horrifying, gender-bending truth.
