Meanwhile, Dandy Dan is using the new Splurge Gun to destroy his enemies. Bugsy falls for Blousey but Fat Sam's girlfriend, Tallulah wants him for herself. Bugsy is asked to do a job by Fat Sam but it all ends up a mess because Fat Sam had hired Louey Begonzey who dies.

Question: Re the song "My Name Is Tallulah", what is the significance of North Carolina as a training location?

Answer: It was just a way of saying where she was raised and how she got to be so good. Even though Prohibition became a federal law in 1920, North Carolina enacted their own prohibition in 1908. During these 12 years, some in North Carolina started bootlegging by driving to Virginia or South Carolina to buy alcohol to bring back to the state. I see it has her training as a gun moll or bootlegger.
