Storyline

Eliot Ness sets out to bring down Frank Makouris, who controls New York's Fulton Fish Market by intimidation and murder and who is responsible for the price of fish going up nearly 50%. Frank's boss, gangster Joe Kulak, tells Frank to lay low until Ness leaves, but Frank ramps up his terrorizing of the market, until Kulak is forced to throw a low-ranking hood to the feds as a sacrificial lamb in order to take the heat off himself. Unfortunately, it doesn't work out as planned. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Something's fishy on "The Untouchables".
2 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting episode because the powerful mob bosses didn't like Frank Makouris (Ricardo Montalban) and the heavy-handed way he controlled the fish markets. He even had the affront to bug Ness' telephone!! So, they ordered him to back off...stop with the killings and be a kinder, gentler sort of gangster. So instead of murdering folks, his right hand man, Lenny (Phillip Pine), began tossing acid in folks' eyes! So much for kinder and gentler! At this point, the mob bosses deliver an ultimatum...either Makouris will die or, if he chooses, he can kill Lenny himself and end the problem. Unfortunately, the plan to kill Lenny goes awry and all sorts of problems result.

This is a tough and gritty episode of "The Untouchables". While Phillip Pine never was a household name, he was excellent here and the show is well worth seeing.
