Storyline

When mobster Larry Fay gets control of the dairy industry, the price goes up and the city is in an uproar. Milk normally sells for 10 cents a quart but has risen to 13 cents with 2 cents going directly into 's Fay's pocket. A commission of inquiry is set up to investigate the matter but Fay only cares about his profit and to the chagrin of at least one of his partners, pushes the price of milk ever higher. Fay owns a nightclub with partner Sally Kansas who isn't aware of Fay's illegal activities. Her much adored younger brother Tommy does and when Fay kills him, Eliot Ness sees an opening to enlist Sally's help in bringing Fay down. Written by garykmcd

The Milk Racket
19 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Except for the fact that June Havoc makes an unforgettable Texas Guinan under the pseudonym of Sally Kansas this is one of the more forgettable episodes on The Untouchables. Eliot Ness and the squad are in New York once again taking down another prominent hoodlum of the era which they had nothing to do with.

The real Larry Fay was a rum runner of note who got out of that and opened a nightclub where Texas Guinan brought in the crowd with her brassy style. How far out he got was a matter of speculation because nothing ever was pinned on him by any branch of law enforcement. And he was shot and killed New Year's Day by a disgruntled employee.

Sam Levene is a good and conscienceless Fay, but June Havoc is just wonderful as Sally Kansas. You can see the real Texas Guinan in a pair of films in the beginning of the sound era, Queen Of The Nightclubs and Broadway Through A Keyhole. Watch those and you'll see how well Havoc did with the role.

By the way the phrase 'butter and egg man' that Havoc uses got Texas Guinan her place in Bartlett's Quotations.
