| Leslie Nielsen as stool pigeon
The long arm of the syndicate reaches into Leavenworth Federal Prison and following it the long arm of The Untouchables by proxy. When two attempts are made on the life of Peter Leeds, a prisoner in Leavenworth from the Chicago rackets, Eliot Ness is sent for by Leeds. Sad to say that the second attempt on Leeds proved successful.

To find out what happened Robert Stack makes a deal with Leslie Nielsen who was serving a smuggling rap in another penitentiary. Nielsen goes in undercover to find out who killed Leeds and why.

With Stack and his squad working the outside the whole story is revealed. And Bruce Gordon as Frank Nitti ties up some loose ends from his perspective.

Nielsen as the convict who's being manipulated into being a federal stool pigeon dominates this Untouchables episode. He's the main reason for seeing this story.
