Wiretapper [DVD] [1956]

Cardmember Offers



Also known as Wiretapper and The Jim Vaus Story, this low-budget production begins as a crime melodrama, then bumpily segues into a religious tract. Bill Williams stars as the real-life Jim Vaus, who for many years was a minor functionary in two major crime syndicates. The wastrel son of a minister, Vaus was "born again"late in life, and as a result he agreed to gather evidence against his mob bosses--including the notorious Mickey Cohen. The Rev. Billy Graham appears as "himself", whom the real Jim Vaus credited for his latter-day conversion to Christ. Wiretapper was adapted from Vaus' autobiography, Why I Quit Syndicated Crime. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
