Thirty years before they hit the big screen via Brian DePalmas brilliant movie adaptation Eliot Nesss legendary exploits came to life in the classic 1950s and 60s television series THE UNTOUCHABLES. Created by veteran crime-drama producer Quinn Martin the series followed Ness (Robert Stack) and his team of crack crime fighters--including agents Martin Flaherty (Jerry Paris) Jack Rossman (Steve London) Enrico Rossi (Nicholas Georgiade) and William Youngellow (Abel Fernandez)--as they took on the Mafia underworld of gangsters Al Capone (Neville Brand) and Frank Nitti (Bruce Gordon) in Prohibition-era Chicago. Smart and iconic the series distinguished itself with superb voiceover narration from broadcaster Walter Winchell and a gritty style that nonetheless eschewed graphic depictions of gore and violence. This collection presents the first half of the vintage shows debut series which includes guest appearances by Jack Lord Martin Landau and Gavin MacLeod.
