Storyline

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

One Reckless Hoodlum
25 July 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Stack as Eliot Ness gets a target painted on his back courtesy of Harry Guardino in this Untouchables episode. Guardino as it turns out is one reckless hoodlum.

With Al Capone now in federal prison the old organization is cracking under the seams. Bruce Gordon as Frank Nitti is trying to hold things together. When Harry Guardino poaches on Peter Mamakos's territory, Gordon tells them to settle thing amicably. Amicably for Guardino is making a deal and then letting one of his gunmen do his things. A young newspaper boy is wounded in the hit on Mamakos.

The murder of Mamakos is a mystery to official law enforcement, just another gangster slaying, the little boy's injuries draw unwanted attention. Gordon is ready to kill Guardino, but Guardino gets a reprieve for a week if he can deliver a dead Eliot Ness. That's enough for Gordon especially if it can't be traced to him. Otherwise syndicate justice takes affect.

This is a great episode illustrative of the criminal mindset at its most reckless. Guardino wants what he wants and doesn't care, he really enjoys the violence aspect for its own sake. In fact this episode has a lot of dead and wounded.
