Storyline

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

Wow...it really sucks to be Arnold Justin!
2 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Arnold Justin (Martin Balsam) is a successful and respected Chief of Detectives. Apparently, he's tired of this life and is looking for a killing...and decides to run heroin for Frank Nitti's mob. Unfortunately, when he and another scum-bag, Raeder (Joseph Ruskin) are making a deal, the feds break in and the drugs become lost. Justin spends most of the episode tracking down a carnival ride operator (Don Gordon) because either he retrieves the drugs or he's a dead man. His only chances are to either find the drugs or run to Ness and spill his guts. Which will it be, Arnold?!

This is a pretty good episode and it is interesting to see Balsam playing a violent guy--something very different from his usual characters. Well made and worth seeing.
