Storyline

With the election of Franklin Roosevelt and the end in sight for prohibition, Frank Nitti and the Chicago mob have been shifting from alcohol to narcotics as their primary source of income. When their supply dries up, Nitti travels to New Orleans to meet with their supplier, Emile Bouchard, whose original shipment of drugs was hijacked but is expecting another any day. Nitti warns him that there better not be any foul-ups with this shipment but it soon becomes clear that Bouchard has plans of his own and is out to get a percentage of the mob's total income. Eliot Ness and his men are in New Orleans trying to break up the drug pipeline. Written by garykmcd

Adler Fun To Watch As Narcotics Crook
24 November 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Luther Adler once again shines in a guest-starring role, playing the debonair-but-deadly "Emile Bouchard".

There were several main crooks in this story: the aforementioned "Bouchard," "Pete Konitz" (Carl Milletaire), "Gil Haller" (Dennis Patrick) and "Frank Nitti," played effectively (as always) by Bruce Gordon. Not only are their multiple criminals involved, Elliott Ness and the boys do some traveling down south to New Orleans to solve this narcotics case.

Bouchard winds up being caught in the middle and it turns very dicey for him as both Nitti and Ness are watching him closely. It gets very tense.
