When gangster Nick Moses and another Chicago mobster threaten to go to war after Moses poaches customers in the other's territory, Frank Nitti - now the top mobster in Chicago after the recent incarceration of Al Capone for tax evasion - tells them to settle things amicably, or else. Moses pretends to make amends but actually arranges a hit on his rival, one that also leads to a young newspaper boy being shot. When Nitti tells him he's a dead man, Moses tries to make one last deal - in return for sparing his life, he will make sure Eliot Ness is killed. Nitti accepts the proposition and gives him six days to get the job done. Written by garykmcd

Crooks Turn On Each Other & Ness Hunts All Of Them
22 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After Capone is sent to jail, a handful of thugs - led by Frank Nitti - is left to run the businesses. The only problem is that one of them, Nick Moses, has already moved in on another's territory and won't give it up. Nitti wants the parties to work out their differences peacefully but that doesn't happen. Moses hires a hit-man to take out his opposition.

Now, Nitti and the rest of the gang want Moses dead but the latter talks himself into a deal. "My life or Elliot Ness's," he offers Nitti. The deal is made but with a six-day time-line. If Ness isn't dead in six days, Moses will be.

The suspense of both the Untouchables trying to get the gangsters and the hit-man trying to get Ness makes this a riveting story. Add in the fact that a small boy also gets shot, and what the father does with that situation and you have a number of interesting subplots.

Some famous actors of the era - Harry Guardino, Michael Constantine and Bruce Gordon all guest-star.
