The Mann Act...hardly the jurisdiction of the Treasury Department.
17 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Untouchables" is supposedly about the real life Treasury agent, Eliot Ness. However, most of what you see in this program is pure fantasy and has absolutely nothing to do with Ness or the Treasury Department. Instead, Ness' character and the activities of the Untouchables are an amalgam of FBI, State and local police activities along with those of the Treasury Department in their efforts to stem the flow of illegal alcohol during Prohibition. This episode clearly illustrates this fictional view of Ness, as the topic is white slavery (i.e., prostitution)--something not within the jurisdiction of Ness or the Treasury.

When the show begins, the head of a prostitution ring and speakeasies dies. His niece, Ginnie, thinks she's owed something from the estate and takes his most valuable possession...his business' books! Not surprising, various crooks want those books as they could destroy them if the cops get a hold of the books. So, a nasty madam decides to take out Ginnie...but innocent little Ginnie ain't so innocent and she has plans.

Overall, this is a very good episode...which has nothing to do with the real Eliot Ness! Worth seeing and full of nice twists.
