True in the bowling lanes
9 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Untouchables finds Robert Stack and his team in Kansas City. Oddly enough no mention of the Prendergast machine which was at its heights during this time, nor even of a Jackson County Judge named Harry S. Truman.

What's going on is that a brand of alcohol from the Caribbean called Jamaica Ginger which can be lethal is being used in the bootlegging industry. Said industry is also having a shooting war between gangsters Michael Ansara and Alfred Ryder. Ansara imports some contract killers for said war who include Brian Keith and James Coburn.

It all goes wrong when Keith who is also bowling hustler meets school teacher Jean Inness at an alley. After that it all goes horribly wrong and everybody winds up dead in a truly bloody episode.

With these kind of guest stars this is not an episode to pass up.
