  • Great episode!!!

    Loved it. Nitti orders 100 gunsels brought in from Detroit to battle it out with someone trying to move in on his Cook County action. There are choppers in several scenes. This episode personifies my impression of the Roaring Twenties (and early 1930s) in Chicago. His rival sets up speak easies and road houses just outside the county but always opposite Nitti's places, and, has REAL Canadian booze instead of the cheap imitation Nitti is selling. Several good face-to-face confrontations between Nitti and Ness. After slugging Ness, Frank actually spends 36 hours in jail before being let go. Lots of action in this one.moreless

    This fast paced episode has plane crashes, gun battles, kidnappings, bombings, and no less than three Ness/Nitti confrontations. We even get to see Nitti slug his arch adversary one. It's almost as though we're in a Saturday matinee serial as Nitti declares war on gangland adversary Victor Buono who's slowly moving into his territory from outside Chicago. Rusty Miller, played by Joe DiReda, gets my vote as the toughest character of the entire series. Miller somehow survives a plane crash, kidnapping, shooting, and a brutal beating from Nitti's goons.moreless
