Storyline

With their breweries being knocked off by the Feds, local mobsters bring in an outsider from New York, Joey Lassiter. Known as the best inside man in the business, he promises them a Ness-proof operation. Caught in the middle is Harry Gordon, the current inside man who now finds himself nothing more than an errand boy. Harry's wife Edna isn't too pleased and starts feeding information to Ness. She eventually convinces Harry to do the same and were it not for their tips, Ness would be completely in the dark. Soon however, Ness and his men find the location of Lassiter's planned brewery on the 6th floor of an industrial building. Ness' plan is to let Lassiter finish the brewery before shutting it down but Agent Lee Hobson is concerned it will look like their on the take if they don't close it down immediately.

"Harry...you're a boob!"
23 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Milton Selzer plays Harry Gordon, a very ordinary looking man who is responsible for building breweries for the mob during Prohibition. However, Nitti's gang wants a brewery that will never be discovered by the Feds and brings in a specialist...a man with legendary skills in creating hidden breweries, Lassiter (J.D. Cannon). But in doing this, Harry's wife realizes that he's being pushed aside. Eventually, Harry realizes the same thing and so both help tip off Ness. After all, if it makes Lassiter look bad, it makes Harry look more important to the organization. While this is very, very dangerous, it might be Harry's best chance as Lassiter has plans for getting rid of him...one way or the other. Early in the show, Harry's wife told him he was a boob...so who's the boob by the end of the episode?!

Overall this was a very good episode with a fitting and ironic ending. No shooting or rough stuff in this one...just a compelling story you're sure to enjoy.
