The Governor asks Eliot Ness if he can help wipe out the mob in a crime ridden area of southern Illinois known as Little Egypt. There, the local syndicate headed by Major Charlie Byron has killed the just-elected reform mayor and are clearly gunning to get rid of the honest Sheriff. Ness is a little pressed with most of his men working on a case in New York so he agrees to send in a new agent, Cam Allison, undercover to infiltrate Byron's gang. Allison is supplied with carrier pigeons to supply Ness with regular reports but his situation becomes dangerous when he's uncovered. Written by garykmcd

The Untouchable Cavalry
7 March 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Stack steps out of the picture for most of this Untouchables episode. Carrying the ball here is Anthony George playing newly recruited Treasury agent Cam Allison who goes undercover in a gang run by Fred Clark who controls a downstate Illinois county with ties to the Chicago wise guys that Eliot Ness is forever trying to put out of business.

Fred Clark who probably was in the cavalry back in his military days, styles himself the Major and wears riding boots and carries a riding crop for affectation and a little use on people. Anthony George who plays Cam Allison infiltrates the gang, but Clark's number one trigger man John Marley remains unconvinced.

Nice shootout in the end with Robert Stack bringing the Untouchable cavalry to George's rescue. He needed it.
