    Bugs Moran Story is a bit different from many Untouchables episodes. For one thing Robert Stack appears in only two scenes as Eliot Ness. Jerry Paris carries the load for the good guys as second-in-command Martin Flaherty. This is one of the few episodes in which the supporting Untouchables are allowed more screen time than their boss. It's also one of the few episodes without a pat ending which might tick off a lot of purists who watch the show. Despite the absence of Ness for much of the episode and the fact that the Untouchables don't triumph completely over the baddies I liked Bugs Moran Story. You have very good performances from guest stars Lloyd Nolan as Moran and Jack Warden as labor union leader Larry Halloran. Nolan was the first of three actors to portray the notorious Moran on the Untouchables and he was the best of the lot even though he bore absolutely no physical resemblance to the real life Moran. Warden, who would appear in two more episodes, gives his best guest performance out of the three here.moreless
