Mitchell Grandin is a prominent citizen of Chicago. As a former councilman and organizer of many charitable events, he has gained a reputation that he tries to put to good use. He's also trying to get the concessions for a major international fair and exposition celebrating Chicago's centenary and has hired a hit man to get rid of his competitors. When Eliot Ness tells the organizing committee that Grandin may be dirty, he finds himself being sued for slander to the tune of $500,000. His only possible defense is to prove that his suspicions are correct. Written by garykmcd

Ness has his back up against the wall..
16 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "The Untouchables" is set near the beginning of the Century of Progress Exhibition...a world's fair that was in Chicago in the early 1930s. A very well respected and beloved man, Mitchell Grandin (Pat Hingle), is working with the committee who approves licenses for the various concessions at the fair. The committee's job is to be sure organized crime isn't involved with their exhibitors and concessions and Grandin seems very helpful in their work. However, Ness' suspicions are aroused and when Grandin applies for a license, Ness asks the committee to delay so he can thoroughly investigate Grandin. Grandin in turn sues Ness for defamation. So how can Ness clear proving that Grandin is as dirty as he suspects.

This is a very good episode that clearly illustrates the expression 'a wolf in sheep's clothing', as Grandin seems like a swell, upstanding guy. But because Ness is the star, you KNOW that by the end of the film that Grandin's scheme will come unraveled. Still, it's highly entertaining and worth seeing.
