Storyline

Having had three boyfriends killed in the last 18 months, Francie West has earned her nickname, the kiss of death girl. She is a blackjack dealer in Phil Corbin's speakeasy and has been dating a minor mobster in Lou Scalese organization named Whitey Barrows. Corbin has plans to move into the big time and with Whitey's help, hijacks four truckloads of liquor belonging to Scalese. Corbin kills Whitey when the job is done and Eliot Ness tries to get Francie to help him out on the case. She's not too keen, initially refusing to accept that her latest boyfriend is dead. When she realizes that Corbin was involved and that her own life is in danger, she reconsiders. Written by garykmcd

A real oddity...and episode with a happy ending!
1 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jan Sterling plays Francie, a dame who's been around the block and who's had real serious troubles with boyfriends. When the show begins, three of her small-time mob boyfriends have been murdered...and soon #4 begins assuming room temperature. The notion of any sane man wanting to be with her is baffling...but eventually, nice-guy Henny (Mickey Shaughnessy), offers to be, perhaps, boyfriend #5...a deadly proposition, indeed!

The rest of the show concerns a guy who is way too clever for his own good. Phil looks like an unassuming bald, middle-aged guy...not a mobster by any means. Yet he has a desire to be a big man in the organization and has the nerve to steal a shipment of Scotch whiskey from one of the big bosses. Not content with this, he actually intends to use this for an even bigger scheme...to take out this same big boss once and for all. Will he succeed or will he ends up no better than any of Francie's boyfriends so far?!

An exciting episode and as I mention in the summary, it has a rather happy ending for "The Untouchables". Well worth seeing and well acted....though I never could figure out what anyone saw in Francie.
