Storyline

Herbie Catcher is a small-time nobody who really wants to improve his status in life. He tries to impress those around him, but without success. He's even tried to feed information to Eliot Ness hoping for praise, but he really has nothing to offer. He's a busboy at a posh restaurant run by Max Zenner and he's not very good at it. On the verge of being fired, he claims to have a recently killed employee's book naming names and other activities that have gone on at the restaurant., especially having to do with mobster Martin Rawlings. His demands aren't that great: he wants to be named the Captain of the waiters but eventually greed takes hold and he forces Rawlings to make him a partner. Throughout, Eliot Ness warns Catcher that he's playing a dangerous game and getting involved with hoods can only lead to jail or death. Written by garykmcd

Chiseler
8 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A nice performance by Frank Gorshin as a small time chiseler and fink is wasted in this Untouchables episode. In real life I can't see Eliot Ness bothering with Gorshin let alone giving up a Depression Era $20.00 bill to him just for bringing him stale intelligence.

But a time when Gorshin does get a hold of something valuable, it's the time he should have gotten to Robert Stack yesterday. After witnessing a murder of a gangster's moll at a nightclub where he's a busboy, Gorshin steals an account book that the moll had been threatening Albert Paulsen with.

Now Gorshin decides to use it for leverage himself. What the result is of this enterprise is for you to see the story. But straight arrow Eliot Ness should never be dealing with this guy. He's dismissed other chiselers for a lot less.
