For me, "The Untouchables" stay the best TV Show of the 50's. It always reminds me when I was a kid (In France the show was broadcasted in the 70's). Robert Stack will be forever Eliot Ness in my heart and my mind. RIP : a great man and a fantastic actor !
There's a few goodies. Frank Nitti returns in a later episode and makes you realize how important Bruce Gordon is to the show. Lee Marvin, James Caan and Roy Thinnes star as brothers in a great episode. The best, though, is when the ever present Nehemiah Persoff returns as Jake Guzik to team up with Harry Morgan as Bugsy Moran. But these great moments, so prevalent in the first three seasons, are just too few in this volume.
As in previous seasons, lots of actions scenes were recycled to save money and the Frank Nitti character only showed up once, but many of the guests from earlier seasons like Telly Savalas, Lee Marvin, Frank Sutton, Ed Asner, Milton Selzer, Nehemiah Persoff, and Frank de Kova reappeared as different characters. I will be ordering Season 4 volume 2 soon to complete my collection, and hope it's as good as volume 1.
As other reviewers have stated, it seems Desilu was trying out ideas for spinoff series and one of these involved Barbara Stanwyck and Ed Asner as investigators tracking down missing persons for the Chicago PD and two episodes were devoted to this. Maybe the new series was to be called the UNTRACEABLES.
