I went over to Bernie, that metal Frisbee-shaped thing in my mouth. “A film can, Chet? That’s kind of strange.” He took it. “We had a film can in the Greed Case, and when we opened it – no film, but a painting by that Martin Ramirez guy.” Hey! I remembered that – a strange painting with trains and tunnels. 

Bernie opened up the film can, looked inside. “A film can with film inside this time,” Bernie said. “Plus a business card.” He held up the business card. “Ezra Printz, Public Relations, Hollywood, California. Tops in the Wonderful World of Movies.” He shook his head. “There’s a slogan.” Then he turned the card over. There was writing on the back. “What’s this?” Bernie said, squinting at the writing. Squinting: always interesting when humans did that. They never look their best squinting, but so what? I like just about every human I’ve met, even including some of the perps and gangbangers. Not Mr. Gulagov, of course. I think he’s in Dog On It. 

Bernie read the writing on the back of Ezra Printz’s business card. “The Greed Murder.”

Work still happening over at Friends of Chet. And also coming – a brand new secret feature!

    Hmmm, it's beginning to look like Bernie is an old movie fan ("old" referring to movies, not to Bernie). Chet, does Bernie maybe have a serious TCM habit??? Perhaps spend time on the film section of The Fedora Lounge? And did Bernie tell you that there are dozens of vintage films featuring dog heroes like you (though maybe only Rin Tin Tin would be your equal in crime fighting and mystery solving!).

    Hi, Jenifer. Bernie wants to know the names of some of these vintage movies.
