An opening night fraught with peril
17 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Willie Dante is a reformed gambler who is opening a nightclub called Dante's Inferno. Convinced that he plans to have gambling in the nightclub Police Lt. Malone pays a visit and is given a tour of the club by Dante. Also paying a visit are three thugs led by Frank Diniakos. Diniakos offers Dante $100,00 if he will set up a gambling room at the club; an offer that Dante flatly refuses. Diniakos tells Dante that if he doesn't change his mind he will murder one of the opening night guests, a certain Ben Simon who is a gangster. Now Dante and his associates Stuart and Biff must protect Simon and turn over Diniakos and his thugs to the police. It's all fast paced if not particularly believable. The best part is when early in the episode, Dante is being interviewed by reporters. All the reporters leave except for a young and naive rookie reporter. Dante pulls the kid's leg with a whitewashed and humorous account of his life. Well done scene and the kid naively writes it all down but one has to feel a little sorry for the kid who later will surely be ribbed about his "interview."
