Storyline

Doreen Maney and her boyfriend Sheik Humphries are responsible for a series of armored car robberies. In their most recent heist, several guards and one of the robbers are killed. With Sheik wounded, they head to Tennessee to hide out with Doreen's father and sister. The old man isn't to pleased to see them and their flight from justice - Doreen and Sheik have been dubbed the love birds - has been making front page news. Eliot Ness and the Untouchables are brought into the case and trace Doreen to Tennessee where they manage to arrest her. She has no intention of turning Sheik in but her younger sister Maybelle sets her sights on Sheik and when he reciprocates, Doreen decides to turn the tables on them. Written by garykmcd

1 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this Untouchables episode the squad is now operating out of the Bronx and in charge of the hunt for a pair of Bonnie and Clyde like bandits played by Anne Francis and Christopher Dark. They've been dubbed the Love Birds by the press, but it's 30 calibre love they're spreading.

After a big score in the Bronx where several people were killed. Francis hides the loot and takes off to visit her father and sister Connie Hines in the piney woods of East Tennessee. What Robert Stack has in mind is to use her as bait as Dark vows to spring her from jail.

Dark is a resourceful guy and that mush mouth southern drawl shouldn't fool you about Francis. Still Dark proves just an inch or two too sure of himself and that's his downfall.

What Treasury agents would be doing taking down bank robbers is anyone's guess because that is the sphere of the FBI. And it has come down in history and movie legend that Bonnie And Clyde were done in by the Texas Rangers. Still this episode is fun because of Anne Francis who has one sexy way about her.
