Storyline

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

A century of progress
23 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Untouchables features Pat Hingle as a real low life gladhanding former city alderman who is trying to get concessions at the Chicago World's Fair of 1933, the Century Of Progress as it was deemed because it was Chicago's centennial. He hires some out of town hit man talent to get rid of three brothers and then Frank Nitti helps him get rid of hit men. Now the World's Fair committee is ready to award him the franchises, but Robert Stack intervenes.

Hingle decides the best protection is a preemptive strike and he sues Eliot Ness for slander. And for a while it's looking pretty good on that front though Bruce Gordon has grabbed off 50% of his action declaring himself a partner.

In the end when you see Hingle caught in a trap of his own making it's worth the whole show to see his reaction. Especially after an earlier scene where he was baiting Ness. It took Robert Stack a lot of self control to not smack this guy, he truly deserved it.

And he truly deserved the fate the criminal justice system had in store for him.
