Our video for this week is from the great crime series The Untouchables, starring Robert Stack as special agent supreme Eliot Ness. The episode is “Ain’t We Got Fun,” first broadcast on November 12, 1959. Tim is unforgettable as Loxie, the grinning pyromaniac torpedo to Ted de Corsia‘s bootlegger Big Jim Harrington.
There are four parts, so be sure to watch them all. Tim and fellow Brooklynite de Corsia were also both in Crime Wave (1954), The Killing (1956) and the Profiles in Courage episode “Andrew Johnson” (1965). Tim really must have angered some major higher-up involved with The Untouchables, as he received no screen credit for what is a rather important part. I just don’t get it.
