Handpicked for Their Incorruptibility!
The classic crime series The Untouchables returns for Season 2 Volume 1, featuring 16 episodes, digitally remastered, on DVD for the first time ever! A realistic look at the violence that shook America's past, this gritty series pays tribute to stoic gangbuster Eliot Ness (Robert Stack) and his incorruptible treasury agents (Paul Picerni, Nicholas Georgiade, Abel Fernandez, Steve London) the Chicago newspapers dubbed "The Untouchables". Narrator Walter Winchell sets a realistic tone with his commentary, as each episode featuring stark sets, dark exteriors, and top-notch guest stars!

Included in this set are the classic episode where Ness battles the legendary mobster "Legs" Diamond, and the two-part The Big Train where Chicago's finest work to prevent a breakout attempt on Al Capone during his transfer to Alcatraz prison! For a show that really packs a punch, nothing can touch The Untouchables!

"...as good as any of the crime movies being made at the time...any fan of this era in America's crime history should consider this a must own.  Jon Jordan, Crimespree Cinema
"...a pleasant mix of film noir and extremely heightened drama...a rare breed: hard-boiled camp.  Jude Clement, TVDVDReviews.com

Editor's Note
Thirty years before they hit the big screen via Brian DePalma's brilliant movie adaptation, Eliot Ness's 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 crimefighters--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 series' second season.

Professional Reviews

DVD Town 7 of 10
"The Untouchables," starring Robert Stack as Eliot Ness, was the kind of cops and robbers show that kids loved...Considering all the sound and fury over violence and sex on TV now, audiences saw an awful lot back then. Along with what I saw in National Geographic magazines, I caught my first glimpse of female breasts in this show. In the pilot, you saw a stripper from the side, then full frontal. Yes, she was wearing pasties, but they were tiny ones (the pasties) and it certainly was enough to leave an impression on a young boy..."The Untouchables" was one of the best crime dramas of its time, a retro-historical film noir melodrama that works, still, because of the way it evokes the Roaring Twenties. And newsman Walter Winchell's narrative deserves a large share of the credit. Casting him was a stroke of genius, and it provided the inspiration for two funny, parody pop song compilations that blended a Winchell "Untouchables"-style narrative with excerpts from popular songs. More than the Emmys, that's how you know you've created a winner. - James Plath
