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

Steven Hill is completely over the top in this one.
29 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you want subtle, this episode of "The Untouchables" sure ain't it! After all, Steven Hill plays the infamous Legs Diamond with an insanely over the top performance that is very enjoyable to watch. However, like so many of these episodes, the actual life of the hood portrayed in this one isn't exactly what you see!

Legs is apparently a guy who has trouble making friends. Various mobsters would love to see him pushing up daisies and he's lucky they only gave him a warning...take a vacation or take a PERMANENT vacation! Despite his supposing to hang low, Legs is a crazy, flamboyant sort and spends much of his time getting in trouble and beating the snot out of his wife. In fact, several times they show him brutalizing her and this sort of show was why critics HATED the show! Still, Hill's performance is mesmerizing...fun to watch and a sure guilty pleasure. Just don't think that Diamond's death was much like you see in the show...it wasn't. And, if you do watch it, get a load of the wonderful narration at the end...it's pretty amazing!
