Green Streak 396

Free sample


Mario Santini, a naïve young, 18 year old American sailor, from a very staunch Catholic Italian family falls in love with a beautiful, black, 19 year old prostitute, all of which is taking place in the white bible belt, pre-Martin Luther King south ( Norfolk, Virginia ) circa early 1950's.

This stunning lady of the night ( named Bahama Mamma by the Fleet ) tries everything to discourage the relentless and annoying pursuit of a love sick sailor but to no avail, he is not going to go away.

She finally gives in and they start dating to find that each has something to give that the other one doesn't have Mario love and warmth from a large Italian family and she, ghetto raised Christina Watson, survival on the streets.

This racially charged togetherness survives leading to a fun, and heart warming romantic comedy....LOVE CONQUERS ALL.

Green Streak 396 is a taxicab owned and driven by street wise African American 40 year old Moses Cotton, Christina Watson's faithful companion, chauffer and confidant who makes all her appointments and drives her to places of business.

Moses Cotton is hopelessly in love with this beautiful 19 year old lady but alas, his love is not returned but he remains faithful to her in spite of all her sorted endeavors.
