Syndicate turns almost legit, but debates its don's proposal to cease shipping narcotics, and go above board in 1960. In the Roaring 20's, the leader began by mugging a neighbor to get money to bury his father. Instead, his brother followed their father's advice, becoming a public health physician. Their childhood pal is the mob's lawyer, who struggles to mediate, as his brother's health fails, and the Feds close in. Written by David Stevens

Thoroughly predictable crime drama
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the worst episodes on the "Thriller" TV series from 1960. It deals with a crime syndicate run by Cesare Romano (Frank Silvera). He's constantly butting heads with aggressive and obnoxious Harry Gans (Jay C. Flippen) who wants to take over. Kindly lawyer Lou Adams (Everett Sloane) tries to keep the piece.

Dull and utterly predictable crime drama with all the stereotypes in place. I knew exactly where this was going from frame one. One the plus side the acting wasn't bad. Sloane and Flippen are good and Silvera is very good (even though he tends to overdo it at times). At the beginning host Boris Karloff promises us, "This is a thriller!" Sorry Boris but you're wrong.
