Storyline

The mobsters are fighting among themselves for greater control of the beer market and Frank Nitti thinks he has the perfect solution. He is smuggling German brew masters into the United States and as a result, is making a far superior product than his competitors. This doesn't sit well with the New York mob, particularly Joe Kulic who decides to do something about it. He hires enforcer Karl Hansa, a bit of a madman, to infiltrate Nitti's operation and shut it down. Eliot Ness and the Untouchables are soon on to the whole scheme thanks to information from an attractive woman, Mady Collins, who seems to have taken a liking to Ness. Written by garykmcd

"You look you got yourself a fan, Mr. Ness!"
23 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this episode, the Chicago mob (Nitti) and New York mob (Joe Kulik) are competing with each other in selling beer. It seems that Nitti's beer is higher quality since he's importing honest-to- goodness German brewmeisters to make his product. To put the hurt on Nitti's operation, Kulik hires a crazed gunman, Karl Hansa (Claude Akins) to pretend to be a brewer and infiltrate the Nitti operation. Along the way, Hansa leaves a trail of bodies. However, Eliot Ness apparently has a fan, Mady Kerner (Delores Dorn), and she's determined to not only help him but make a pass or two at him. As Mrs. Ness disappeared and was never talked about after the beginning of the first season, apparently he IS available! Unfortunately for Mady, Hansa finds out she's working with Ness.

This is generally a good and very enjoyable episode. I would have scored this one an 8 but at 30 minutes into the episode is THE sloppiest scene I've ever seen on the show. Ness and his men are chasing a 1920s model Rolls Royce. During the chase, the car with the baddies flips and explodes...and it's a 1940s model that looks absolutely nothing like the Rolls (though it did have four wheels!). Additionally, the lighting is different as well as the setting itself!! Talk about sloppy...and I am sure most of the folks at home noticed this as well!
