  • Okay episode.

    7.0
    Okay episode with Jim Backus and Marc Lawrence giving good performances as a mob accountant and the boss whom the accountant decides to testify against. Worth noting in this episode is the performance of Abel Fernandez as Agent Youngfellow. Fernandez gives his best performance of the series and also has the most unusual undercover assignment of any Untouchable during the show's run. There's also a shocking scene where young Jenny Norbert, the daughter of the Backus character, is deliberately runover by a car driven by hoods. The final action sequence where the Renaldo mob is rounded up is yet another in the long line of great Untouchables climaxes.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Even though it's stated in the ending narration that former Capone lieutenant Luigi Renaldo was sentenced to prison and was sent to Alcatraz, this would not have been the case in real life as the government took special care to send convicted associates of Capone to other Federal prisons besides Alcatraz and earlier Atlanta.
