    Yes, a gangster's moll, sometimes known as a "gun moll". Another interesting slang term is "gunsel", which I first learned when I saw Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon". The junior gangster who tries to rough him up is a "gunsel".

    I love slang from the thirties and forties; it's fun to watch films from that time for the line of patter.

    Yes you have. You and I both used it as the second of a triple word phrase in a conversation regarding sex toys (the first being "booze" and we differed on the third)! :D

    You could be right, but certainly not in conversation (I was thinking of the "real" world).
