Storyline

When a police captain's son is arrested in a drug sweep, Eliot Ness decides to try and locate the source of the drugs. The pusher was someone known as Peepers but he dies before they can get much information from him. They do manage to trace him to Chicago nightclub owner Sal Rudin and believe the heroin originated in New Orleans. Ness travels to the Big Easy posing as a bass player and meets booking agent Russ Bogan, who is part of the distribution network. He also learns of their unique system of delivering the goods across the country. Written by garykmcd

Crawly skin
22 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

There was never any continuity with The Untouchables series as the writers had to continually find new plots and villains for the crack group of Federal agents to deal with. In the last season Robert Stack and the crew were dealing with narcotics which is not anything the real group did. They'd just run out of Prohibition stories.

In this episode Stack is brought in by a Chicago police captain who says that his son has been found to be a hop head. It turns out the junk is being peddled out of a jazz club and we all know how those jazz musicians loved their narcotics.

Heading the gang are club owner Robert Emhardt and booking agent Simon Oakland. But in a small role as a low level peddler in a part that will totally creep anyone out is Robert Ellenstein. His few minutes in the episode will leave you with crawly skin.

Check this one out if it's broadcast.
