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

Necessary capital
16 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episodes concern for The Untouchables are the Stryker Brothers who after a stretch in prison are back and looking to reclaim their little crime kingdom in Cicero. Which they can if they can raise the necessary capital. When you're a criminal that's solved by pulling a robbery in this case on a train. They kill a guard on the train and two accomplices. These brothers are a murderous lot and don't like to leave potential witnesses.

There are four brothers Joseph Bernard, Michael Strong, Buck Kartalian, and Frank Sutton. The last is the idiot brother and quite frankly if they had shot him it would have been better than getting rid of the others.

Anyway Sutton leaves a piece of evidence that the Feds seize, but don't know they have. So Sutton comes up with the idea of getting retired torch Nehemiah Persoff for an arson job in the basement of the Federal building where evidence is kept. I imagine a few other cases went up for Robert Stack and his squad.

Persoff and Sutton stand out in this Untouchables episode.
