Storyline

When junkie Benny Rivas is stopped by Eliot Ness and his men, he tells them in his dying breath that the source of his heroin is the 808 Club. Ness knows the club's hostess, Maggie Storm, quite well. She's married to the frequently absent owner and denies any knowledge of drugs being sold on the premises. In fact, she has set up a very clever trading floor where mobsters bid for anything from drugs to counterfeit money. She has a bigger problem however when Louis 'Lepke' Buchalter decides he wants to take over the club and sends his murderous henchman Vince Shirer to eliminate anyone that might stand in his way. Ness decides to recruit a soon to be paroled mobster to infiltrate the organization. Written by garykmcd

It's all deception
18 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dying junkie Herman Rudin with a couple Untouchable bullets in him says that he got his fix at a certain nightclub where Patricia Neal is the Texas Guinan like host. She looks innocent enough but that's all deception.

Her real problem isn't Eliot Ness and The Untouchables. It is rather an attempt by the famous founder of Brooklyn's Murder Incorporated Louis 'Lepke' Burkhalter to take over her club and the rackets that are run from it.

Patricia Neal is fine as a woman losing control to alcohol among other things. Now that it's legal again she's having a great old time. She's not clever enough to evade Burkhalter's trigger man Vic Morrow who before he got the Combat series played all kinds of hoods and punks starting from The Blackboard Jungle.

Not one of the better shows, but Neal and Morrow are outstanding.
