Storyline

Jack Parker is an up and coming young hustler who wants to become part of Frank Nitti's organization. He thinks there's an untapped market on university and college campuses but Nitti thinks he's just a nickel and dimer and isn't interested. Parker has been making his own booze and selling it through Benny Angel, who hangs around the campus actually selling the stuff to the kids. Parker decides to get Nitti's interest by secretly arranging to sell wood alcohol to students and then convincing Nitti that he can make sure the stuff sold to students is clean. When Benny Angel is found dead, Ness has another reason to find the man behind the scheme. Written by garykmcd

Handsome man with an ugly soul.
27 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jackson Parker (Robert Redford) is a very handsome, well educated man. However, despite his college education and fine manners, he's a jerk...a nasty and sanctimonious jerk. He has an assistant in his alcohol-peddling business who is slow...and Parker treats him like he's garbage. He also has ambitions of striking it rich by getting Nitti to help finance him in selling hooch to college students. But to get Nitti's attention, Parker is willing to say, do or hurt anyone...and he does it with a smile. Even when he deliberately poisons a few of his customers with wood alcohol, leaving several blind or dead, this cool guy doesn't even seem the least bit bothered! Will this pretty-boy ever get his comeuppance?

I really liked this episode. Picking such an incredibly handsome man and having him playing such a dark character was very striking. It is very well written and well worth your time.
