Acting on an anonymous tip, Eliot Ness and his men find themselves at a local carnival keeping an eye on an impending purchase of narcotics. The seller is Alexander Rader, a known drug dealer and the buyer is Arnold Justin on behalf of Frank Nitti. They are scheduled to meet in an electrical room accessible only through the tunnel of horrors tide. Justin is an ex-Chief of Detectives who was always honest when on the force but decided he was fed up putting his life on the line for minimal pay so he quit and now acts as a buyer for the mob. Unfortunately, he also realizes that the park is under police surveillance and refuses to go through with the buy. When the drugs disappear, Frank Nitti makes it quite clear that he expects Justin to deliver the goods, or else. Written by garykmcd

Out of his league
6 May 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Martin Balsam's portrayal of a mobbed up ex-cop highlights this Untouchables episode as Robert Stack and the squad stop a dope transaction from taking place at a carnival run by Joseph Ruskin.

Ruskin is the supplier and Balsam the money man representing Bruce Gordon and the syndicate. When The Untouchables bust up the deal, unfortunately a punk played by Don Gordon runs off with the heroin, they only get Balsam and the money. No crime in carrying a satchel filled with cash, but it does put Balsam in Eliot Ness's sights.

After that Don Gordon decides to go into business for himself, but he's just a punk without the gangster smarts.

As it turns out though, Balsam is playing out of his league as well. Robert Stack has to settle for some rough street justice though.

Nicely played by Robert Stack.
