Like father, like son?
20 March 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Louis Madikoff (Harold J. Stone) is a mobster who makes money selling drugs--a profitable business in the post-Prohibition era. However, recently Ness and his men captured a huge shipment of his drugs and it hurt him badly. He automatically assumes his arch- rival, Pavanos, is behind it. And, with Lucky Luciano breathing down his neck, Louie is getting rather reckless. Unfortunately for him, he has no idea that it isn't Pavanos that is responsible for the shipment being intercepted but his own son, Danny (Daryl Hickman)! It seems that Danny hates his father and is dating the hated Pavanos' daughter!

There is one odd thing about this one. Danny ends up struggling with a gun one of his fathers' men drew on him (Jack Elam)) and shooting him. Danny runs and eventually Ness catches up to him and doesn't even arrest him but automatically accepts Danny's word it was self- defense. Huh? Otherwise, a nice sort of story about a twisted father-son relationship that is well worth seeing.
