Storyline

Bugs Moran, hiding out since Al Capone eliminated his gang in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, is visited by Eddie O'Gara, a man he thought had been killed by rival gangsters several years previously. Although he never cared for O'Gara in the first place, Moran is intrigued when Eddie lays out a plan to put Moran back in charge of the rackets again. Meanwhile, Elliot Ness is looking for Moran and O'Gara, figuring that both will want revenge on the gangsters who are responsible for their plight and that he can use that to destroy the Chicago syndicates permanently.

The O'Garra Brothers
9 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm an agreement with the other reviewer who said this particular Untouchables story was a ripoff of the classic James Cagney film, Public Enemy. Doesn't prevent it from being one of the better episodes in the series history.

Eddie O'Garra after years away in jail has come home to Chicago and mother Meg Wyllie and brother Sean McClory give him a welcome and McClory gets a job like his as a street car conductor for the brother who says he wants to go straight.

Michael Connors playing O'Garra has no intention of that, the job is a blind and an organization from the bottom of the criminal food chain stores its weapons in the utility box of his streetcar. What Connors is doing is trying to reconstitute a North Side mob for Bug Moran played here by Robert Wilkie. Connors needs the Moran name to be taken seriously, but Wilkie has no intention of being a figurehead.

Of course Connors reaches to high and the inevitable happens. Robert Stack has the dubious distinction of saving the life of Bugs Moran in this story.

In real life Bugs Moran from his heights as boss of the north side gradually slid down the criminal food chain. After a second conviction for bank robbery Moran died in prison in 1957. He lived to the ripe old age of 65, amazing by underworld status.

Connors as the hot to trot Eddie O'Garra and Wilkie as the wily Bugs Moran highlight this one of the best Untouchables episodes.
