He learns to be a tough guy, so that by the time he is released he has become one extremely bad dude. Now Gold is working in New York City for his boss, the diminutive Eddie Fish, as head of NiteKlub security. When he isn't shaking down poor saps by breaking their bones when they fall delinquent on their loan payments, he frequents NiteKlub's restaurant.
