Synopsis for Slam Bradley: "The Hollywood Murders"

At a circus, in front of a crowd, Slam Bradley captures a murderous trapeze artist, in a spectacular airborne fight, which generates great publicity, which in turn leads to an offer from a Hollywood studio. Terril Desmond hires Slam and Shorty to do stunt work at Stupendous Studios.

It's a scam, Desmond has murdered his business partner Bentley, and stuffed his body in a closet in his office, and now he seeks to also murder Slam and Shorty. After an encounter with a gunman, who escapes (and who turns out to be Desmond himself in disguise), and a series of fake accidents, and a frantic racing-car chase thru Beverly Hills, Desmond turns out to be behind all the chicanery, and gets punched out by Slam, and arrested.

The new studio boss tries to hire Slam and Shorty for $100,000/year, but they decline and return to Cleveland.
