Ness Wants A Killer, Gibbons Wants A Story
4 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's conceivable that the real Floyd Gibbons actually might have met the real Eliot Ness at some point or other. Gibbons lived a life of adventure that many would envy and his employer the Chicago Tribune, sent him to many faraway places on the globe for a story. Just as you see in this film he might very well have stopped in Chicago long enough to change planes.

But it was the bad guys misfortune to have him stop in Chicago when his colleague and friend Paul Langton is killed in a mob hit. Langton was investigating a mob takeover of the scrap metal dealer market and he stepped on some toes.

Langton also had a personal connection in this story that he didn't know. His wife Dorothy Malone had history with a kill crazy hoodlum played by Joe Campanella. Mob boss Alan Baxter has barely a handle on Campanella. That's what brings everything down.

Scott Brady played the adventurous Floyd Gibbons and Stu Erwin plays another reporter colleague who witnessed Langton's death. This particular Untouchables episode had a cast rich in big screen names as you can see. Dorothy Malone was often paired with Robert Stack as a co-star in such films as The Last Voyage, Written On The Wind, and The Tarnished Angels.

Ness wants a killer, Gibbons wants a story and in the end they both get what they want.
