Recap

In May of 1932, there's a Depression going on and there are numerous soup kitchens in Chicago. One of them, owned by Chez Goshen, is actually a front for a house of prostitution. Chez's partners in the operation are a powerful, nationwide vice syndicate known as "the Group." Hood Vic Cassandros reprensents their interests in Goshen's establishment. Goshen's niece, Ginnie Littlesmith, runs the soup kitchen downstairs. She's not involved in any of her uncle's rackets. ..

Episode Notes
Location: Chicago

Future Dynasty star Linda Evans has a small, unbilled role as one of the title character's sisters.



Episode Quotes
Mary: Coercion is against the law, Mr. Ness.

Goshen: Ginnie, you're a born loser.

Ness: If Goshen's niece has those books it might make her as popular with the Group as it does with us.

Mary: (to Ginnie) One hundred thousand. That's a lot of presidents.

Mary: You give Augie two and two and before you know it he'll add it up.

Mary: (to Ginnie) You take those books to Eliot Ness and you've turned in your telephone number.

Vic: Ginnie, you're a little dirty like I'm a little clean.



Episode Goofs
When Vic Cassandros shoots Chez Goshen the gun is clearly pointed at his knees but Goshen grabs his chest.



Analysis
This episode functions as sort of a prelude to what we would see from The Untouchables in Season Four. There's a lot of pathos and not much action although we do get good performances from guest stars Phyllis Love, Don Gordon, and Brooke Byron.
