Good crime story
17 November 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This episode is one of those of the series that looks the most like THE UNTOUCHABLES. But it is however a bit less action packed than the show which made Robert Stack a star. That's really a gangster scheme, with Michael Pate as a mobster, of course. He could hardly play a priest in such a series. You have the unavoidable Charleston sequences with Dotty Provine, but for the rest, it's quite different if you compare with the other episodes. Tight and sharp directing and also powerful screen writing that makes it among the best really crime episodes of the whole show. I won't repeat the topic, it's already explained in the plot line, but if you love gangsters stories, don't miss this one. And as I have already said before in another comment, it's always funny to see a columnist carrying a gun and opening fire on bad guys like an ordinary cop. Just like that.
