Storyline

Mobster Victor Kurtz makes peace with his main rival for illegal liquor distribution in Chicago's South Side, Monk Lyselle. All goes well for several months until Eliot Ness and his men begin to intervene. They begin to hijack Kurtz' trucks and he automatically assumes that Lyselle has broken their agreement. Over the several months there was peace, Kurtz' main gunman, Holly Kester, has lost his nerve and Ness focuses on him as a possible way to put both Kurtz and Lyselle out of business.

Agents Provocateur
8 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Untouchables in this episode try a new strategy in their war on crime as defined by Prohibition. They act as agents provocateur and hijack and destroy illegal booze, not as Treasury agents, but as masked heist men. The hope is that the warring gangs of John Anderson and James Griffith will get to fighting again and arrests will be made.

What Robert Stack gets is an unexpected bonus of Anderson's number one trigger man Charles McGraw just turning soft. McGraw has come to the realization that he's lived a long time in his line of work and would like to just quit, but there are no retirement plans in his company. Even his girlfriend Gail Kobe thinks he's just turned coward. The only sympathy McGraw gets is from Eliot Ness.

Charles McGraw dominates this story and it's worth seeing for an unusual portrait from tough guy McGraw.
