The Untouchables Season 2 Episode 17
Summer 1931, Chicago. Eliot Ness and his Untouchables had smashed most of the big breweries owned by the mobsters. But racketeers, taking advantage of the poverty and desperation of many immigrants, forced them to make a gallon of whiskey a day in small stills in their homes– makeshift stills which could be put together for less than $3. The absolute boss of Little Italy is Augie “”The Banker”” Ciamino, and with whiskey pouring out of 1,000 tenement stills, he was cancelling the gains that Ness had made.
