Storyline

With a public outcry over the level of gang violence in Chicago, the authorities appoint retired lawyer Willard Thornton to the new post of Crime Commissioner. What no one realizes is that he has formed a new syndicate bent on importing and distributing narcotics. When the new cartel's enforcer, Steve 'Country Boy' Parrish, is arrested by Eliot Ness he is soon out on bail thanks to bail bondsman Barney Lubin, a Thornton associate. Parrish knows that Thornton's style is to eliminate any possible risk to his reputation so he is soon on the lam, living in the back room of a country garage run by Emmy Sarver. She has her own ideas, primarily focused on keeping Parrish around. As both Ness and Thornton close in, Country Boy Parrish must face the wrath of a woman scorned. Written by garykmcd

Lawlessness on the rise again
22 November 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Lawlessness is on the rise again in Chicago and the governor has appointed white shoe lawyer Wendell Corey as head of the crime commission. What the governor doesn't know is that Corey is also the secret of the new syndicate being put together out of remnants of the old mobs. His number two is bail bondsman Carroll O'Connor and enforcer Albert Salmi.

Things unravel when Salmi is caught by The Untouchables at the scene of a junkie's murder. O'Connor bails him out and then tries to kill him, but Salmi does him in. After that he's a fugitive wanted by both Robert Stack's team and Corey.

Unfortunately for Salmi he takes refuge with Mary Fickett who runs a hash house for truckers and is kind of man crazy. Maybe on the run just might be better.

As you can see this Untouchables episode has top flight guest cast and they deliver a fine episode.
