The Scarface Mob (1959 TV Movie)
7/10
Great But...
20 October 2019
As the world's biggest Untouchables fan it would pain me to write anything negative about this franchise. But this Pilot, at least the first part, though it does get a bit better, is pedestrian compared to the best episodes of the subsequent series, which of course we remember, forgetting the worst. First episode The Empty Chair a case in point. Of which the first few minutes even, are a step up in tempo.

Its funny that some of the original Untouchables such as Paul Dubov later sit on Frank Nitti's council and Peter Leeds is as a con in 3000 suspects!!. Eddie Firestone an Untouchable!!!! (sorry Eddie), and Paul Picerni does a complete about turn. The series has the benefit of the great music played during the episodes which this does not have. Which always adds great substance.

To me its ironic that the whole revolves around the prohibition of alcohol while most of the characters smoke like chimneys!!!

Bruce Gordon, Neville Brand, and Frank (F. Troop) de Kova are some of my all time favourites but for the first two in proper larger than life form watch the Big Train Parts 1 and 2 and Bruce and Frank in The Frank Nitti Story , Nick Acropolis etc.

Again a good watch but not a patch on the best of Series 1-3. but still way ahead of disappointing Season 4

The Guardian (1984 TV Movie)

In same boat
30 December 2017
I recorded it into my video collection from TV many years ago and have made a DVD copy also, but I like the other reviewers would like to own an original copy myself. Currently my Vieod/DVd player is out of action but intend to get a new one and can then make other copies of the film.

Art Passarella Never Credited
2 December 2017
Warning: Spoilers
Art Passarella plays A Jake Guzik Henchman, and is often in other Episodes such as a Nick Moses henchman, but why is he never credited here, and does not appear in the list of "Full cast and crew", why this is I am not sure as he was a well known Baseball Umpire, he is credited as Officer Sukulavich in the Streets of San Fran Cisco. so why not here.
