A hedge against Prohibition's repeal
19 February 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Gangster Ted DeCorsia is looking to take over various nightclubs in the Chicago area, both as an outlet for his illegal booze and as a hedge against Prohibition so he'll have a living after it's repealed. He muscles in on Joseph Buloff's club and its draw, comedian Cameron Mitchell. As it turns out though Buloff is a friend of Eliot Ness which brings in The Untouchables.

I think it might have been better for the story had a real comedian been hired for the part. Mitchell try as he may just doesn't come off as any kind of funny when he's 'on'.

But on the plus side Timothy Carey as DeCorsia's enforcer is playing one of patented psychotic roles and no one does psycho this side of Lyle Bettger better than Timothy Carey. Phyllis Coates is around also as DeCorsia's sexy squeeze who Mitchell takes an unhealthy interest in.
