Storyline

With Al Capone out of the way, the mob is looking to relocate its base of operations outside of Chicago in a nearby community. Their first step is to get rid of the incorruptible mayoral candidate, Judge Leon Zabo, who they run down in the street. The Coroner's inquest is a sham and it is obvious that the Chief of Police, who appoints the Coroner, is already in the syndicate's pocket. Ness and his men move into the town intent on shutting the mob down before they even get started but the Untouchables find that they also have to protect the dead Judge's daughter, Rosetta Zabo, who has taken up his anti-corruption campaign.

Very exciting stuff!

"Syndicate Sanctuary" is one of the more exciting episodes of "The Untouchables" as it's very violent and has an inventive plot. Provided you understand that the story (like most on the show) is total fiction, you'll enjoy seeing it.

The film is set in the fictional suburb of Calum City. If you are a Chicagoan you know this sounds like Calumet City--a suburb that was known for its corruption in the age of gangsters. Perhaps they changed the city name to avoid lawsuits.

When the show begins, an honest judge who is running for office is murdered. It seems that the mob is moving into this small town and wants to use it as a base of operations...hence the need to get their own officials elected to office. When Ness finds out about this, he actually urges the opposition party to not make waves-- they're sure to be killed and he and his boys will take care of the problem. But it's a BIG problem, as the police force is about as corrupt as possible and the gangs won't exactly play nice! What is Ness to do?!

As I mentioned, this show is quite violent and has a lot of action and originality. Because of these reasons, it's very enjoyable...and having a mug like Anthony Caruso playing the mob boss sure didn't hurt!
