Prohibition has come to an end and bootlegger Frank "The King" Argos has also come to the end of his life. He asks Eliot Ness to become the executor of his estate but Ness declines, for obvious reasons. He's left everything to his son Charlie, who was declared missing in action at the very end of World War I. When his minions find that life The King's money is not very much to their liking, they recruit and train someone to pose as the long lost Charlie. The man they've chosen however seems to know more about Charlie's childhood than they do. Written by garykmcd

Anastasia Of The Underworld
21 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Vaughn stars in this episode of The Untouchables which is clearly taken from the film Anastasia. The difference being that the sex roles are reversed and it's a woman Patricia Owens who is looking for the male heir to a criminal empire.

If you saw the film for which Ingrid Bergman won her second Oscar you will recognize Robert Vaughn as the young man whom Owens finds in a soup kitchen to take over the wealth that his dying father Paul Birch left him. Vaughn is part of a syndicate power play to take over the organization that Birch ran. Owens who was Birch's mistress is being squeezed out.

Part of the scheme for Owens just like it was for Yul Brynner is to find an authoritative unimpeachable source. That's longtime family attorney Kent Smith in the Helen Hayes part.

So if you've seen Anastasia you know exactly how this will end. Still it might be worth a look to see how the plot is adapted for The Untouchables.
