With the end of Prohibition, gangsters have now focused on the drug trade. A New York-based syndicate known as the Big Six, long established in the illegal drug business, visit drug distributor Louis 'The Bear' Madikoff in Chicago who has had his recent shipments to Lucky Luciano in New York picked off by Eliot Ness and his agents. Madikoff is convinced that fellow Chicago drug dealer Mike Pavanos is responsible for feeding Ness with information so he sets out to even the score. It turns out however that Madikoff's son Danny is dating Pavano's daughter Francie. Their fathers blind hatred of one another leads to tragedy. Written by garykmcd

Shades of Romeo and Juliet
31 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Shades of Romeo and Juliet creep into this Untouchables episode as competing gang families headed by Harold J. Stone and Booth Colman are both up for the dope concession from Robert Carricart playing the infamous and gangland legendary Lucky Luciano. Stone has it, but his shipments are being waylaid by The Untouchables because Robert Stack is receiving some very reliable tips.

While all this is going on Stone's son Darryl Hickman and Colman's daughter Collin Wilcox are seeing each other. Both would like to run away. But all I can say is Hickman has issues with Stone that Romeo never had with Lord Montague.

A couple of really fabulous character players have some memorable roles here if ever so briefly. Warren Oates plays a visiting hit-man from Detroit's Purple Gang and Jack Elam is one of Stone's best trigger men.

An interesting tale of romance amidst gang war in Chicago.
