Product Overview

The Untouchables comes to DVD for the first time, featuring all 28 Season One episodes, plus "The Scarface Mob," the seamless movie version of the ground-breaking two-part pilot first broadcast on the Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse. Considered one of the best crime series of its time, the hit show starred Emmy winner Robert Stack (Unsolved Mysteries) as real-life Chicago gangbuster and prohibition agent Eliot Ness, famous for bringing down the notorious Al Capone.

Executive Produced by Quinn Martin (TV's The Fugitive) and narrated by Walter Winchell, whose distinctive voice lent credibility to the show, the resulting series depicting 1930s Chicago was dramatic fiction with documentary authenticity...and became an instant classic! Each week, Ness and his men wrestled with such flavorful villains as Dutch Schultz, Lucky Luciano...even Ma Barker! But these agents could never be bought off. They were The Untouchables!

Editors Note
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 vintage series' debut season in its entirety.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Town
Review "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.
