Storyline

Mobster Jake Kuzik is a major liquor supplier in Chicago and he doesn't hesitate to use strong arm tactics to keep his network of distributors and retailers in check. He's been having trouble getting supply lately and he comes under pressure - helped along by Eliot Ness and his men - to find liquor for sale or else. He forms an alliance with an arch-rival, Bugs Moran, to import half a million gallons of whiskey by train and they set up a clever deception to keep Federal agents off the scent. Written by garykmcd

Strange Bedfellows of Crime
4 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode as narrated by Walter Winchell describes in the waning days of Prohibition a fictional deal made by two strange bedfellows of crime. Jake Guzik and Bugs Moran have little love for each other, but Guzik is in a jam and he needs the guy whose organization he almost decimated at the famous St. Valentine's Day Massacre.

Nehemiah Persoff made a few appearances in The Untouchables series as Guzik, Bugs Moran is played here by Harry Morgan. Before going into the booze business Moran learned his criminal trade as a heist man and Guzik needs him to bring in liquor because The Untouchables are doing such a good job in shutting down his stills and club owners are buying from independents.

This episode as many of The Untouchables had absolutely no relation to reality. But Guzik by all accounts was a man with a convoluted Machiavellian streak to him. He shows it here and it proves his undoing.

The scenes with Persoff and Morgan crackle as they would have if the real Bugs Moran and Jake Guzik ever were in the same room and had no weapons. For that alone you should see this Untouchables episode.
