The Short

Plot: A police officer catches Sammy stealing apples from the market. Giving Sammy a picture of life in prison, the officer gives him a day to come up with a dollar to pay for the stolen apples or else he'll have to go to jail. He gets an idea from a fight promoter with a large wad of bills, first to stage an unsuccessful bout between Farina and Dorothy Morrison, and then to take advantage of the feud between Mickey and Jackie over Mary to stage a championship bout in Sammy's barn between the two which the neighborhood kids will pay to watch. Farina is selected to watch over everyone giving their admission. "Knock-Out Mickey, The Irish Giant" and "Terribul Jackie, The Bone Crusher" (his spelling) put up a good fight with Sammy as referee coaxing them along, promising each of them that the other will take a dive in the second round until they get wise and knock Sammy down. Meanwhile, Mary gets distracted by a well-dressed new kid who takes her for a soda. Mickey and Jackie drop their fight to go after the new kid and beat him up, but he meets up with the same police officer who arrives upon the scene and breaks up the gathering, causing Sammy and the boys to head for the hills.
