Storyline

Two mobsters - Joe Courtney and Tim Harrington - are fighting it out to get control of the syndicate in St. Louis. Dink Conway, owner of the prestigious Jockey Club, tries to make peace between them but the hot-headed Harrington will have nothing to do with it. Conway soon dispatches his henchman, Whitey, to dispose of him. Soon after, Courtney robs a Postal truck carrying $1 million in bonds but Conway decides he wants the proceeds. Eliot Ness and a rookie agent, Cam Allison, are dispatched from Chicago to investigate. Working with various brokerage houses, they try to locate the missing bonds. Written by garykmcd

Violent and nasty....as usual.
9 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

David Brian plays Dink Conway, the sophisticated owner of a St. Louis club. However, down deep he's just a thug and using his muscle, Whitey (Leo Gordon), he is intent on running the city. After one of the local mobsters and his buddies pull of a very violent and brazen robbery of securities, Dink helps himself to the loot and kills off the robbers. However, Ness intercepts the guy who is trying to dump these securities and is intent on finding out who is behind all this. In the meantime, Conway and his friends create mayhem, murder and exercise over control the local police chief.

While David Brian doesn't look like the gangster type by any stretch, he and Gordon are quite nice in this episode. You might also recognize Brian from other roles...such as the weird Nazi-like leader on the "Star Trek" episode "Patterns of Force" or any one of dozens of other appearances on TV shows through the 1950s and into the 80s. As for Gordon, it's even more likely you've seen him as he has nearly 200 IMDb credits...not just on television but films as well.

All in all, this is a very good episode of the series made even more so by some very vivid murders and a plot that never is dull in the least!
