Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse: The Untouchables (2)

Eliot Ness and his special squad of Federal agents known as "the Untouchables" continue to take the fight to the criminal empire of Al Capone but pay a high price along the way including the loss of an agent and the death of a prized informant. Eventually, thanks partially to their efforts, Capone is indicted and convicted of income tax evasion and sentenced to 11 years in prison. But Frank Nitti, Capone's right hand man and feared "enforcer" is still at large.......
