Description
Description: We hear a rapid dissonant string idea as Hank's heart starts racing when he sees Bo Creel; sequential ascending music leads to dramatic music for a fight scene; this music comes from another prison fight in the film Crime School (1938); it ends with a tense drone as we transition into the next scene in a jail cell
On-screen: Hank sees Bo Creel
