The Wikipedia article - The Untouchables (1959 TV series) - has been updated and now contains full details of each episode in this season too, and is worth checking out if you want to know which are featured on this DVD collection. This series features guest stars such as Telly Savalas and Russ Conway - no, not THAT one! and in episode 7 we also get to meet the Purple Gang - not the Granny Takes a Trip version!
If you enjoyed season one then season two will not disappoint. Season three volume one was released on DVD in the US in August this year (2009) and volume two will be released in November. Hopefully a UK release will follow next year.
They just do not make films and TV series like this anymore, good scripts and quality acting from real professionals.
The quality of the sound and vision is excellently copied using Digital Remastering processes. A series not to be missed at a very good price. Can't wait to collect the whole series.
Robert Stack's excellent performance as Eliot Ness lends his character a quitely spoken, yet great authority, and along with the rest of his men, a real likeability.
Amongst the 32, fifty-minute episodes, theres a two-part story "The Big Train", in which Al Capone's forthcoming transfer from his prison in Atlanta to the newly built Alcatraz, reveals a big plot to spring Capone from the train while on it's journey between the two prisons.
Walter Winchell's occasional narration brings a nice documentary feel to proceedings. This is a very entertaining crime series, directed at a good pace. A number of familiar guest stars appear, including Neville Brand, Steve Cochran, Barry Morse, and Elizabeth Montgomery, in a role thats far removed from her sweet natured character Samantha in the 1960's US TV comedy series "Bewitched".
The black and white picture and sound quality are good.
The soundtrack languages are: English, French, German, Spanish.
The subtitle languages are: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish.
which was delivered well ahead of time , came well packaged, and the price was good too,.
