Storyline

Eliot Ness and his men are having success shutting down the narcotics trade in Chicago thanks to a series of anonymous telephone tips. Ness manages to trace the call to a phone booth and identify the caller as Nick Dulov, owner of the Windy City cab company. Dulov has stolen Nitti's 15 kilo shipment of heroin and then gives it back to him - with a proposition that they go into the narcotics distribution business together. Dulov's wife, Georgiana Drake, is fed up with their relationship however and having killed her husband tries to convince Nitti to do business with her. Her proposal is to use her fleet of taxis - and those in several other cities as well - as mobile narcotics stores and having the junkies come to them, rather than the other way around, and offer a free fix to anyone of the who brings in a new customer.

Tough Cookie
2 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Untouchables in this episode are dealing with a cab company that wants to provide a distribution network for the Capone organization heroin product and certainly the idea is an intriguing one. The idea is brought to Frank Nitti by Grant Richards who used to be with Capone back when Al was running it, but now has this cab company.

Richards makes the moves but then is bumped off by none other than his wife Ruth Roman using her cabbie trigger man Jay Adler. Roman moves right in to the deal with Bruce Gordon. Unfortunately Robert Stack and his squad are right in on the trail.

Two women dominate this Untouchables story. Ruth Roman plays one tough cookie who has decided she's tired of being a doormat and running the business for her flashy husband. And Anne Helm plays a junkie nightclub singer who goes into rehab. If the episode had made her character the prime focus it could have been called The Woman With The Golden Arm. The scenes of drug withdrawal are right from that Otto Preminger classic.
