When one of Marty Pulaski's dance hall girls is shot by a sniper just outside his nightclub, he automatically assumes that his main rival, Vince Bogan, is responsible. Bogan controls most of the 10 cent dance halls in Chicago, but there has been peace between the two, mostly because of mobster Janos 'Jake' Szabo. Marty loses his temper and kills Bogan which Szabo is willing to forgive, if Bogan really ordered the killing. When a second girl is killed, it becomes obvious that someone else is behind the killing and Marty tries to protect himself and his brother Herbie. Written by garykmcd

Feuding Dance Hall Proprietors
11 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode might have rated higher from me had it not been done for The Untouchables. But certainly the mission of the Treasury Department agents could have nothing to do with a pair of feuding dance hall operators.

The two feuding are Theo Marcuse and Ed Nelson. Marcuse has the much larger operation. A sniper has shot two dance hall girls from Nelson's studio and Nelson thinks it's Marcuse behind it. He shoots and kills Marcuse and now has a big syndicate player in Joe DeSantis after him.

Not for a million years does Nelson suspect that it's his younger brother Sherwood Price recently come from New York doing these killings. Price is someone with some real issues over women which makes him the killer he is. Again not something that is in the jurisdiction of the Treasury agents.

In this next to last Untouchables story, Robert Stack has to go east to do research on the brothers and Paul Picerni runs The Untouchables for a while. Something that I'm sure was a gesture to Picerni from Stack and the producers at Desilu.

Too bad it wasn't a better show.
