Storyline

Working in the New York area, Eliot Ness and his men are trying to trace an incoming shipment of narcotics. Some years before, mobster and nightclub owner Jack "Legs" Diamond spent time in Europe and he made a deal with a Greek crime family to buy $5 million worth of narcotics. Diamond is flamboyant and loves publicity but his partners, Lucky Luciano and Dutch Schultz, want him to lay low for a while and they send him off to his cabin in the Catskills. When Diamond learns that they have gone ahead with the drug deal without informing him, he assumes they're trying to cut him out of the deal and goes after the drugs himself. Written by garykmcd

Modern Twist
9 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Untouchables brings Robert Stack and his squad into New York with yet another gangster they had absolutely nothing to do with. Steven Hill famous as straight arrow District Attorney Adam Schiff on Law And Order goes on the other side of the law to play Jack 'Legs' Diamond.

A curiously modern twist to this story where gangster Joey Gallo and Joe Columbo both got eliminated by people in the rackets who thought they were bringing too much attention to the business has Diamond being aced out of a big narcotics deal that he set up for Lucky Luciano, Dutch Schultz and others. They try and miss and then they offer him a buy out.

Kind of silly when you think about it. I couldn't quite fathom Luciano and Schultz who hated each other first ordering a hit and then acquiescing to giving Diamond a piece of the action if he goes quietly away. Of course he doesn't and therein lies the story.

Not one of the better Untouchable episodes.
