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.

A 'Ness proof' brewery
2 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode has The Untouchables dealing Bill Zuckert's organization and its plans to build a new brewery which has to be 'Ness proof' because Robert Stack has been knocking over their other locations with increasing regularity.

What Zuckert does is import from New York J.D. Cannon who has developed a plan to put a brewery on a roof. He's now the fair haired boy of the boss but current brewmaster Milton Selzer is feeling left out. And Anne Jackson his wife feels something ought to be done.

What they do and how it turns out is for you to watch the program for. But I have to say that poor Milton Selzer plays the most nebbishy gangster I've ever seen. Not surprising though. One has to remember that he was in a legitimate line of work until 1920 and his services were needed by those who wanted to still make a living off a now illegal but demanded product. If Prohibition had never happened this poor guy would never have been involved in criminal activity.

This was a most unusual Untouchables story. None of the principals are killed, not a shot fired.
