Love That Brute synopsis

Big Ed Hanley (Paul Douglas) has a reputation as one the most ruthless gangsters in 1920s Chicago, but he also likes to sit in the park feeding ducks. One day he meets Ruth Manning (Jean Peters), an aspiring singer who is working as a governess. Drawn to her, Ed hires her to care for his sons -- even though he has no children -- and pays a local delinquent to play the role. Ed wants to convince Ruth that he's a decent guy, while making his rival Pretty Willie (Cesar Romero) think the opposite.
