Storyline

Frank Nitti decides to import a large amount of heroin - $2 million worth. Eliot Ness is soon onto him and arrests the delivery man, Mr. Yang from Shanghai, but he no longer has the goods and they have no reason to detain him. Ness and one of his men travel to San Francisco to see if they can determine how the goods were smuggled into the country and determine that it entered on a passenger cruiser and was then shipped by air to Chicago enclosed in a large globe. Meanwhile, one of Nitti's fellow gangsters, Larry Bass, has his own plans for the drugs and assembles his own team to break into the bank vault where Nitti is temporarily storing the globe.

One of the best
6 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the best in the entire series.

It is beautifully photographed in the expressionist film noir tradition.

The script is well-plotted with unexpected twists.

There is some very nice production design, special effects and use of locations.

It is elegantly directed with good acting

And the editing is brisk and smooth.

Several of Hollywood's best character actors complement the regular cast.

Someday someone needs to review the entire series and isolate those episodes -- like this one -- that stand the test of time.
