The black & white picture and sound quality on this 14-episode collection is good. The subtitles are in English only, there are no extras. The discs WILL NOT play on a Region 2 DVD player, so be prepared (all the above details also apply to the volume 2 release of this title).
Having read some of the more critical reviews of this release on Amazon.com, I ordered my copy with some trepidation. Having now watched both volumes 1 & 2 of this fourth and final season (this review can stand for both) I cannot understand some of the more severe criticism levelled against it. Even though I did get a sense of the series 'winding down' in some of the episodes, the stories are still well written and directed at a good pace. There is an overall toning down of the violence, with less explosive gun battles and the like, but still very entertaining nonetheless.
The bootleg booze and narcotic stories are still here, along with scams, a school for assassins, and an outbreak of bird flu! Familiar gangsters such as Frank Nitti, Jake Guzik & Bugs Moran also put in appearances, while Eliot Ness is joined in a couple of investigations by Police Lieutenant Aggie Stewart (played by Barbara Stanwyck). Other guest stars include Roy Thinnes (The Invaders), Dorothy Malone and Scott Brady. The usual reliable performances from the regular cast & guest stars all contribute to a solid conclusion to a classic crime series from the 1950s/60s. Well worth completing your collection I reckon!
