Fun because of Clu's insane performance...and, not entirely fictional., 13 November 2015
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

"The Untouchables" often used the names of real gangsters but highly fictionalized their exploits. Such is the case of 'Mad Dog' Coll, though at least in this case they got Coll's nutty personality right!!! He was never apprehended by Elliott Ness, he never kidnapped a horse and he never kidnapped and then murdered one of Dutch Schultz's friends...though he did kidnap folks and in one case did this to one of Schultz's men--though he was released unharmed. This episode takes place all over the place--as the TV version of Elliott Ness was NOT confined to Chicago. Here, he's in Chicago, New York and even Louisville at the Kentucky Derby!

Despite playing fast and easy with the facts, this is a fun episode because Clu Gulager's performance as Mad Dog was nutty and over-the- top--sort of like Richard Widmark's florid performance in his breakout film, "Kiss of Death". So wacky you can't stop watching!
