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

Some Are More Guilty Than Others
29 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Frank Silvera(Charlie Roman), John Marley(Tony Romano) & Everett Sloane(Lou Adams) play two brothers and one friend who turn to a life of crime when they are young men. Charlie becomes the Don of a big crime family, while Tony became a Doctor and Lou became the Family attorney. Both Tony and Lou want Charlie to go legitimate, and away from narcotics, but ruthless fellow crime boss Harry Gans(played by Jay C. Flippen) thinks that a mistake, and poor Charlie's bad heart will soon push events in a new direction that will devastate all...Interesting precursor to "The Godfather" is nowhere in that league of course, but remains one of the better crime episodes, though with few surprises.
