| Taking up her father's cause
This week's assignment for Eliot Ness and his picked crew of incorruptible agents is in the fictional town of Calum City, Illinois where the syndicate is thinking of setting up shop. First to rake in the profits from the wide open place they want to make of it, but second to have a headquarters to oversee all kinds of other operations under the watchful eye of a friendly police chief in Robert Simon.

The concept of the wide open are and corrupt government that goes with it has been done in films like The Phoenix City Story all the way to The Godfather Part II where the mob is trying to purchase a whole country.

Judge Raymond Greenleaf who was a reform candidate for mayor was run down by a truck and his daughter Gail Kobe is taking up his fight. It was a set up job, but coroner Douglass Dumbrille and Chief Simon turn the inquest into a farce.

This episode marked the first appearance of Nicholas Georgiade as agent Rossi of the Treasury Department who would be with The Untouchables series run. Also Jack Elam plays one of the hired hoods of syndicate kingpin Anthony Caruso.

A whole lot of familiar big and small screen favorites are in this episode which makes it worthwhile.
