| 'Mad Dog' Puts Some Bite Into The Show
A totally out-of-control gangster? That's apparently the case here, or at least it is shown as such in Clu Gulager's performance as Vincent "Mad Dog" Coll.

"Mad Dog Coll's hatred for former boss "Dutch" Schultz will lead him to do anything to hurt the latter. When a kidnapping scheme with Schultz' bookkeeper "Lefty Gallagher" goes wrong, Coll schemes to rob Schultz out of money he had bet on a horse running in the Kentucky Derby. Coll actually kidnaps the horse and later tries to shoot him at the Derby in Louisville, Kentucky.

This is a wilder-than-normal episode. I'm not sure if Gulager overrated in his role or Coll was really that volatile, but at least he made this episode interesting. Elliott Ness (Robert Stack) and the boys spend most of this case in New York City where the two gangster antagonists were battling each other. Schultz was shown as low-key.

The ending to this had a nice twist to it, but beforehand I was sorry to see the typically- stupid (for movies and TV shows) scene where the bad guy shoots from five feet away and misses the good guy. Come on!

Anyway, it still was a good show, better than average so far in this first season. It also had a quick scene where Stack actually smiled or laughed. You don't see that often on this program!
