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.
