Storyline

After Al Capone is imprisoned for tax evasion, he leaves his Chicago operation in the hands of a governing council. There are two factions however, one headed by Frank Nitti and the other by Jake 'Greasy Thumb' Guzik, and they can't agree on anything. To resolve the deadlock, Capone asks his mentor, known only as Kafka, to return to the U.S.A. and take over the management of his organization. Kafka was deported 11 years previously and now lives in the Orient and Nitti and Guzik hire Alexander Stavro to ensure that Kafka entry is uneventful. Eliot Ness and the Untouchables work with the RCMP to ensure Kafka is prevented from crossing into the U.S.A. Written by garykmcd

So business can be done
15 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this Untouchables episode all is not well in the Capone organization that Al left behind while he was in jail. There is a struggle for power in the group between Frank Nitti and Jake Guzik. The ruling council is split down the middle with Bruce Gordon having four votes and Nehemiah Persoff having four. Then some hits are made and it becomes three and three.

Orders from the top even though Capone is in the joint. He wants another man, a deported gangster brought back in secret to be the seventh vote so business can be done. For that Gordon and Persoff contact Joseph Ruskin, a man who specializes in smuggling people in and out of the USA for a big price.

Ruskin's a cold fish of a human being and Nitti and Guzik hate him more than each other, but he's got a service they need. And of course Robert Stack and his squad is on the trail.

I always liked what Nehemiah Persoff did with Jake 'Greasy Thumb' Guzik and I wish he did more episodes in that role.

In this good Untouchables episode it all gets nicely resolved.
