Eliot Ness and his team have been successful in shutting most of the drug trafficking in Chicago. One exception is 'Little' Charlie Sebastino's operation. He has accumulated quite a stash over the years and doesn't need to import new supplies to keep his lucrative operation going. A drug overdose victim puts Ness onto Sebastino's distribution chain but he is puzzled when the gangster stops selling the stuff. Unbeknown to Ness, the Commission, chaired by Joe Genna, has ordered Sebastino to stop selling drugs. Needless to say, 'Little' Charlie hatches his own plan to eliminate Genna and come out on top.

Killings on the side
15 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Stack's elite squad moves from illegal beer to dope in this episode of The Untouchables. Eliot Ness's target is Henry Silva making his second appearance in the series as Charlie Sebastino.

Silva's an ambitious young mobster who's cornered the narcotics trade in Chicago. However the Genna Brothers, Eduardo Ciannelli and Will Kulava are wanting him to cool it. Silva has a good stash of product and unable to move it. That's sets up a triangular conflict between Silva, the Gennas, and The Untouchables.

The Gennas have a sister played by Paula Raymond who is one cool customer herself. Silva's putting the moves on her, but she knows what she's dealing with. And Conrad Janis has an unforgettable role as a hopped jazz drummer who does killings on the side for Silva.

Again nothing to do with Chicago gangland history, but entertaining.
