Storyline

When Nick Segal's parole is turned, racketeer Nick Segal decides to get back at his partner Sam Argus who was supposed to make the parole went through smoothly. In Chicago, the two of them ran a gambling empire that generated profits of $1 million a month. When word gets out that Segal has asked to see Eliot Ness, he is killed by another inmate and as the Warden says, that leaves them with 3,000 suspects. Ness decides to recruit Tom Sebring, a prison inmate who still has six years on his sentence, with the promise of early parole if he helps them find Segal's killer. Written by garykmcd

Leslie Nielsen as stool pigeon
30 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The long arm of the syndicate reaches into Leavenworth Federal Prison and following it the long arm of The Untouchables by proxy. When two attempts are made on the life of Peter Leeds, a prisoner in Leavenworth from the Chicago rackets, Eliot Ness is sent for by Leeds. Sad to say that the second attempt on Leeds proved successful.

To find out what happened Robert Stack makes a deal with Leslie Nielsen who was serving a smuggling rap in another penitentiary. Nielsen goes in undercover to find out who killed Leeds and why.

With Stack and his squad working the outside the whole story is revealed. And Bruce Gordon as Frank Nitti ties up some loose ends from his perspective.

Nielsen as the convict who's being manipulated into being a federal stool pigeon dominates this Untouchables episode. He's the main reason for seeing this story.
