Chicago, 1930, time of the prohibition. And it is the great time for the organized crime, the so called Mafia. One of the big bosses is Al Capone. He is the best know but at least, he was only one in a dirty game of sex, crime and corruption. People are willing to pay any price to drink alcohol, and sometimes it is their life they have to pay with. Special agent Eliot Ness and his team are trying to defeat the alcohol Mafia, but in this job, you don't have any friends. Written by

Several episodes show Frank Nitti taking over control of the Capone organization immediately upon Capone's conviction for tax evasion. In real life, Nitti was also convicted of tax evasion and sentenced to 18 months in federal prison; he wasn't able to assume control of the Capone organization until his release late in 1932.

Crime:those that commit and those that try to stop...one of the greatest ever!
Quinn Martin, Desilu and Robert Stack propelled a crime series into the status of TV greatness. This series ran 114 episodes long, but stands shoulder to shoulder with such giants as GUNSMOKE and BONANZA. Set in Chicago, late 20s and 30s during depressed times and prohibition, Special Treasury Agent Elliot Ness(Robert Stack)and his band of crime fighters must deal with bootleggers, gangland murderers, assassins and crime figures like Al Capone(Neville Brand) and Frank Nitti(Bruce Gordon). Expertly narrated by Walter Winchell, this power packed crime drama got the story told without the use of on screen gore, profanity or blatant violence.
Besides the super work by Stack and Gordon others became familiar faces:Nicholas Georgiade, Oscar Beregi Jr., Anthony George, Abel Fernandez, Jerry Paris, Steve London, Grant Richards and Jason Wingreen. This series was so near perfection production wise. Awesome.
Note: TV Land, A & E, Nick at Nite, TNN...somebody put this back on the air for future generations.
