I mentioned Chester and his employment on the noir alley thread a few days back.    My point was that no gangster boss would hire a psycho like Chester because Chester isn't reliable;   E.g.  the boss only wants to get info from someone and asks Chester to use some violence to do so;  Chester is so sadistic, he kills the person.    Now the boss is involved in a murder - not wise.

Chester is a very interesting noir figure,  but he isn't realistic.    Instead a mob boss would be better served by having someone like Joe Stefanos,  from Out of the Past,  do his dirty work.    Joe was cool and calm.
