A Taut, Exciting Story Well-Told & Photographed, 29 September 2011
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

Like the first episode in this third season, this was outstanding. The story was terrific, the acting superb and likewise, the photography. The DVD-transfer looked almost high-def.

The story involves purchasing of heroin and how it gets sidetracked by a "thug" and a crooked ex-cop. The latter, the smart guy of the show, is played by veteran actor Martin Balsam. He is excellent, as is the thug, played by Don Gordon, who was good at playing those kind of roles during this era when "The Untouchables" was a hit TV show. Another player is the famous Frank Nitti, played by another Gordon - Bruce - and he's always interesting in that role.

Justin is an old nemesis of Eliot Ness, so Elliot is on edge.....he really, really wants this arrogant ex-lawman.

The story is tight - not a loose or dull moment in the script - and the black-and-white photography looks fantastic on the sharp CBS-TV/Paramount DVD transfer.

This episode really points out the paranoia one could have being a criminal in which no one - justifiably so - trusts anyone.
