Storyline

Following the Hillsdale Express train robbery in which a million dollars was stolen and a mail clerk was killed, 'Tough' Tommy Karpeles is convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Eliot Ness has been tasked by the Post Office to recover the missing million and he begins to think that Karpeles may be innocent. Information from a dying hood puts him on the trail of Karpeles' former associate Arnie 'The Wolf' Mendoza, now a supposedly reformed cinema owner living under the name of Albert Maris. When Mendoza kidnaps Karpeles' daughter Sally to keep her from talking, Tommy decides to help Ness and rescue his daughter. Written by garykmcd

Great Cast Makes This Edgy Episode A Winner
19 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The four guest stars in here were all very familiar faces from the '60s and '70s - Harold J. Stone, Joseph Wiseman, Murray Hamilton and Madlyn Rhue.

Stone usually played a hard-nosed guy. He had the face and voice for it. Wiseman has a good resume for the big screen as well as the small screen. He played "Dr. No" in the title role in the first James Bond movie! Hamilton was much more versatile and on TV lot but actually became better-known after his role as the mayor in the 1975 famous "Jaws" movie. Rhue was a stunning beauty whose career was cut short due to illness.

Anyway, the story is a pretty good one. It has to be with monikers like "Tough Tommy Karpelas" and "Arnie 'The Wolf' Mendoza." There is a lot of edge to this story, more than normal with an intense ending.
