    Lawrence Dobkin dominates this episode with his in your face performance as Arthur Phlegenheimer aka Dutch Schultz. I rank Dobkin's Schultz as the second best performance by an actor as a real life gangster on the show right after Bruce Gordon's Frank Nitti. Supporting Untouchables Jerry Paris also gave one of his best performances of the series. The scene in the hotel room where Schultz discovers that Martin Flaherty is actually an undercover operative is a series classic.



    We also get to see a young Marion Ross as Vera Schultz. Vera refers to her husband by his real first name Arthur instead of his nickname Dutch. This will be a hoot for any Happy Days fan who watches Dutch Schultz Story as Ross's character on that show was the only one to refer to Fonzie by his real name which was also Arthur. Also look for future Bewitched co-star David White in a nice bit as Schultz's attorney.moreless
