Recap

Chicago. 1934. After Prohibition has been repealed. Now that booze is legal again, the underworld has been stepping up their activities in the narcotics trade. As the episode opens, Ness and Hobson give chase to two narcotics dealers. Hobson shoots down one and Ness gets the other, Benny Rivas. Ness finds heroin on Benny's person and with his dying breath the hood says that he got the stuff at the 808 Club...

Episode Notes
Evidently Patricia Neal couldn't sing a lick because although Maggie Storm is supposed to be a famous nightclub singer, she never warbles a note in this episode.

Joseph Ruskin takes over the role of Lepke Buchalter in this episode. Ruskin would return as Lepke in Season Four's Blues for a Gone Goose..

Location: Chicago



Episode Quotes
Lepke: (to Maggie) My name is Buchalter! Lepke Buchalter!

Hobson: The other one's dead but he's clean.
Ness: This one's alive but he's not so clean.

Ness: Miss Storm and I met a few years back.
Maggie: It was my favorite arrest.

Lucky: I don't like fans with badges.
Maggie: A flame can't select its moths.

Harker: Mr. Ness, you just bought yourself an ex-con.



Analysis
This one is a bit of an underachiever despite the presence of two well-known guest stars: Patricia Neal and Vic Morrow. Joseph Ruskin, as Lepke Buchalter, manages to steal this episode right out from under the noses of his better known co-stars by uttering one classic line of dialogue.
