Eliot Ness and the Untouchables have put a sizable dent in Al Capone's operation but they now find that legitimately produced alcohol is making it's way onto the illegal booze market. With the help of the Federal District Attorneys in Chicago and New York, they trace the liquor to Brawly Mills, a major food and beverage manufacturer located in the city of Brawley, New York. The president of the company, E. Carlton Duncan denies any wrong doing, as does his senior executive Brooks Wells. Ness however finds a connection to bootlegger and criminal Johnny Torrio who the agents recently killed in a liquor raid. Looking for any definitive tie between Duncan and the mobster, he finds that Duncan and Wells are actually assumed identities and that they may have met Torrio in prison fifteen years before.

Squeeze and grief
3 October 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Once again The Untouchables threw history to the wind in creating this episode for Robert Stack and his team. Johnny Torrio who after surviving a gangland hit, retired and turned it all over to his chief lieutenant Al Capone. He never returned to Chicago, simply became an underworld elder statesman.

But here Charles McGraw does come back when during an investigation of the syndicate getting legal grain alcohol from an upstate New York firm McGraw's nephew is killed. He blames the president and chief accountant of the firm Edward Andrews and Henry Jones for the death.

Torrio has something on both these guys and he's been getting his alcohol for his product and squeezing them for years. What it is is the heart of this Untouchables episode. It's Nicholas Georgiade of the team that uncovers it.

Not one of the better stories.
