Storyline

Augie 'The Banker' Ciamino is a bootlegger who seems to have developed an almost foolproof way of manufacturing his liquor. He has equipped over a hundred immigrant homes with small stills to actually make the stuff and a unique way of collecting the product. Not everyone in the immigrant community is participating in the illegal liquor-making operation and Eliot Ness visits a night class where adults learn English. His visit is followed by Ciamino's thugs who give the teacher a beating in front of his students. When shopkeeper Renzo Raineri intervenes, he learns that his son, a bookkeeper, is part of Ciamino's organization. Once Ness at his men learn how Ciamino collects the liquor, they try to catch him with goods but through intimidation and murder, the mobster proves to be elusive. Written by garykmcd

Augie...a serious jerk.
1 March 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode is about Augie 'The Banker' Ciamino (Keenan Wynn). His claim to fame is organizing lots of home brewers and small-time operators into his own little fiefdom. In order to keep these employees from opening their mouths, Augie and his 'associates' use intimidation and murder.

Standing up against this menace is Renzo Raineri, an old man whose son works as a bookkeeper for Ciamino. This dolt thinks he can work for Ciamino and keep his hands clean...he also thinks he can maintain breathing when his father bucks this system. Can Ness and his men get to Renzo after he steals Ciamino's books or is he about to become yet another crime statistic?

This is a mildly interesting episode--one that is good but not a standout in any way. Worth seeing but nothing more.
