A strong episode, a no-holds-barred extortion story with trigger-happy thugs who take advantage of refugees in Chicago, taking a part of their paychecks for "protection."
One Hungarian violinist balks, and they beat him up and put him in the hospital with a hand injury. Frank and the boys find out about this and decide they are going to help this guy and the other refugees who are being strong-armed. Somehow, this case really hits "Det. Frank Ballinger" (Lee Marvin) and you don't want to get Frank mad!
Frank winds up doing what he likes to do - go undercover. He pretends to be a refugee and waits for the goons to try to take his money.
It's a good episode, especially the second half of it which also features an actress who had a very pretty face: Judith Braun, who plays "Bettina Sandor."
