  • Jake's back but where's Frank?

    Nehemiah Persoff made his third and final appearance of the series as Jake "Greasy Thumb" Guzik who's a little different this time from his first two appearances. For one, he's now the head of "the Organization" a la Nitti and he even acts like Nitti right down to a few Nittiesque one liners. This leads me to suspect that Doublecross was originally a Season Three Nitti script which got shelved and wasn't filmed until the show's final season. The writers simply changed the name of the character from Nitti to Guzik along with a few of the locations and what you see here is the result. Not a bad episode by Season Four standards but hampered by the poor casting of Harry Morgan as Bugs Moran. Morgan tries hard but he simply isn't suited for the role.
