Storyline

Soon after the three Stryker brothers rob a train, killing someone in the process, Eliot Ness and his untouchables are on their trail. They get a warrant and seize the Strykers books and papers hoping to find something incriminating. The dim-witted Benny Striker has kept a piece of correspondence from the train robbery and his brothers decide they need to somehow get rid of that evidence. Benny approaches an old friend Mr. Jaeger, a retired arsonist, to set the Federal building's evidence room on fire and destroy the documents. He succeeds, but Ness uses basic psychology to ferret out Jaeger and the Stryker brothers. Written by garykmcd

What's up with Benny?
19 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Frank Sutton of "Gomer Pyle" fame stars in this episode about four criminal brothers, the Strykers. The oldest (Michael Strong) is clearly the leader and the youngest, Benny (Sutton), is either mentally challenged or treated as if he is...it's hard to tell which. Fortunately, Sutton's performance wasn't over the top and he was just fine as Benny.

These Strykers are an unsavory lot...even for "The Untouchables". This is because in addition to stealing, they have a habit of killing off their associates because they just don't feel like sharing the loot with folks who aren't kin. Nice, huh? With such goings on, it's not surprising that Ness and his men would come to investigate the brothers. The first thing they do is use a search warrant to confiscate the Brothers' tax records...which creates a problem. To handle it, the Brothers decide to do something really crazy...hire a torch to burn the Federal office where the tax records are being stored!!!

In addition to Sutton, Nehemiah Perfoff stars as the arsonist...and his performance is, thankfully, a bit more subdued than his other recent "The Untouchables" characters. Overall, well done and worth seeing.
