In January of 1933, Eliot Ness and the Untouchables turned their big guns on Mikhail "Red Mike" Probich who had hard-fisted hs way up from the docks to a position of prominence on the Chicago underworld. They raid a speakeasy/brothel owned by Probich and run by Connie Laverne. Ness seizes Probich's books and thinks that he's as good as in jail...Read the full recap
Halas: (to Ness) I don't have to believe my client is innocent, I just have to prove it.
Halas: Some days you're just lucky.
Ness: Some days you're crooked.
Halas: You talk big numbers.
Coombs: I'm a big man.
Hobson: (about Coombs) He did us a favor. He got rid of Probich.
Ness: Not if he's putting on Probich's hat.
Coombs: (about the Probich murder) That late at night who's even awake?
Halas: You'd be surprised.
Coombs: You get me out. Whitey too.
Halas: I'm a lawyer not a miracle worker.
In the climactic scene, when Larry Coombs shoots Morton Halas, the first shot is clearly wide of the mark yet Halas grabs his abdomen area anyway.
Jack Klugman gives one of the best guest performances of the series as Morton Halas, a defense attorney from an impoverished background, who's pulled himself up by the bootstraps but then sold out for the easy money of defending mobsters. The interaction between Klugman and star Robert Stack is some of the best of the series.
