Storyline

When mobster Charley Radick learns that he has leukemia and only a short time to live, he decides the time has come to visit his daughter, Margaret, now a young woman. When Charley had gone to prison for a 10 year stretch, he had left her with the Wilsons but when he got out, he decided to concentrate on moving up in the rackets and left the girl with them. When he visits the Wilsons however, he's told that Margaret left some three years before. When Eliot Ness learns that Radick is dying, he asks him to come clean and give him the organization's books. Radick makes a deal: if Ness can locate his daughter, he will give him the information he wants. Ness then turns to Lt. Agatha Stewart of the Missing Persons Bureau for help. Written by garykmcd

In many ways, it's not much like an episode of "The Untouchables".
25 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

A real dirt-bag mobs boss, Charley Radick, is dying from Leukemia and he'd give anything to see his daughter one last time. But when he went looking for her, she'd disappeared...presumably to get away from the filthy life of organized crime and her filthy father. Frustrated, Radick offers Ness an intriguing offer...find Margaret Radick and then he'll leave a huge pile of evidence Ness can use to destroy the mobs! Well, Ness and his assistant, Lt. Stewart (Barbara Stanwyck) are not helping Radick out of sympathy as much as to use Margaret to get that information from her father.

All in all, this episode was probably the most unlike the TV series of any...at least up to this point. Ness was more a tangential character and the star, clearly, was Stanwyck playing the good guy...or gal! It also is MUCH more sentimental than normal...and not quite as hard-edged as usual...and for me, that's a bit of a disappointment.
