Horseracing caper

That's the first episode I watch from this TV show. I don't know if it was aired in France. I guess it was not. The typical scheme of the early sixties, the atmosphere of the thirties gangster movies, mob stories, in the UNTOUCHABLES and other big screen items or such topics. Very awesome production design. There were dozens of such features: RISE AND FALL OF LEGS DIAMOND, PURPLE GANG, MURDER INC, PORTRAIT OF A MOBSTER... Anyway this episode is very engaging to continue the series, because it doesn't seem to focus on only one or two main recurrent characters. One of them is Charley, and he can pick horse racing winners. Charley turns out to be a respectable insurance agent. He is not a pure gangster, that's where it is interesting. I will comment many of those other episodes.
