  • Once Upon a Time in Chicago

    This eerie and atmospheric episode plays out almost like a Universal horror movie from the 1940's with its portrait of Chicago's gypsy community doing battle against a sinister villain who's one of their own. Janos Colescu is not your typical loud-mouthed braggart type Untouchables villain. Colescu, played by Charles Bronson, is grim, sinister, and tight-lipped. His screen time is also limited yet you always get the feeling that he's out there lurking in the shadows and waiting to pounce. Much like the Wolf Man and the Frankenstein monster in those old horror flicks.
