There are 8 million stories in the "Naked City" this wasn't one of them
12 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** With a gang of bootleggers brewing their moonshine in far off Fire Island it's the NYPD who's given the assignment to arrest them after they gunned down a Federal Agent who got a bit too close to their illegal operation. You at first wonder way did the NYPD get the job to apprehend the bootleggers when to local police or even FBI didn't! And why on earth were they sent some 60 miles out their jurisdiction from the 65 precinct in mid town Manhattan to Fire Island makes no sense at all! And even worse has nothing to do with the shows "Naked City" theme in the one of the 8 million stories that it has to show its TV audience every week.

The bootleggers headed by Alky, his name fits, played by former Wolfman Henry Hull are about as reliable in their operation as the cheap and possibly poisonous ,possibly from wood alcohol, booze that their brewing. As it turns out it's Alky's #1 and only gunman the mentally deranged, from injuries in WWII, Hartog, Michael Conrad, who blows their entire operation first by gunning down the Federal Agent and then in a fit of insanity the rest of his fellow bootleggers! The man was very unstable but his boss Alky seemed to overlook that fact which cost him his life.

***SPOILERS*** It was the sensitive and peace loving Lundy, George Maharis, who saw the futility in this half a** operation and wanted out together with Alky, who was like a father to him, and fellow and not too bright bootlegger Boz,Guy Raymond.But with Hartog completely going nuts and turning their hideout and moonshine factory into a free fire zone he made any chance of preventing the bloodshed that was to follow a total impossibility!
