Eliot Ness and the Untouchables decide to try and convict New York mobster Dutch Schultz the same way they got Al Capone, through income tax evasion. Agent Marty Flaherty goes undercover working his way into the gang and learns that Lucky Luciano is moving in on Schultz's territory. When Schultz is charged, he successfully petitions the courts to move his trial to upstate New York where he charms the community eventually leading to his acquittal. While away from the big city however, Luciano has been even more aggressive and Schultz has to deal with him on his return. Written by garykmcd

Change of Venue
13 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hearing Walter Winchell's narrative of this story all I could think was that Winchell who was on the scene in New York when Dutch Schultz and Lucky Luciano were battling it out must have had a chuckle or three since he covered the real story in his column and it never included The Untouchables.

Both in Portrait Of A Mobster and Billy Bathgate where Vic Morrown and Dustin Hoffman play Schultz respectively you get the same story better and more elaborately told.

The main point of this story is the change of venue asked for by Schultz and his attorney for a fairer trial. The fictional town of Clearview was in reality Malone, New York, county seat of Franklin County near the Canadian border which up to that time best known for being the home of one of our more obscure Vice Presidents William A. Wheeler. What happened there as far as Schultz was concerned is as this episode and those two feature films show, he essentially bought the good will of the town and gained an acquittal.

However Lucky Luciano settled the rivalry permanently in his own way.

Lawrence Dobkin made the second of two appearances as Dutch Schultz who Robert Stack and his agents never had anything to do with his demise.
