Storyline

With the imprisonment of Al Capone for tax evasion, Frank Nitti has taken over the operation of the organization but that isn't stopping others from trying to muscle their way in. Arnie Seeger in particular thinks he has the opportunity to create a national crime syndicate and partners with St. Louis mobster Joe Kulak to make it happen. They plan on inviting key mobsters from across the country to a conference in Chicago. Into this mix comes a recently released small-time criminal, Maxie Schram. His wife Roxie now lives with Seeger and Maxie tries to hit her up for money. Down and out, he has no choice but to turn to Eliot Ness as an informant after his wife refuses to help him. It is Maxie that puts Ness and his men on Seeger's trail. When Kulak kills a policeman who had wiretapped the site of the syndicate conference, theirs is now a murder investigation as well.

An Ambitious Man
8 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Conte is a small time hood in Chicago who is dreaming big. He'd like to be Lucky Luciano and has the idea to start a national syndicate now that Al Capone is in jail. He brings in Oscar Beregi from St. Louis who has a big enough name to be a front. Or so he thinks that he'll be the power behind the throne.

This guy takes what he wants and among other things he's taken is Susan Oliver away from another small time hood Milton Seltzer. Now Seltzer's out and looking for a handout, but Conte humiliates him and Oliver humiliates him further. That was a mistake because now Seltzer is going to be a stool pigeon for The Untouchables.

This is as scurvy a lot as you'll ever find in an Untouchables episode and if you can wrap your mind around the concept of Milton Seltzer and Susan Oliver ever being married you'll enjoy it. I enjoyed it because Richard Conte makes just about everything better by being in it.
