Now that the U.S. Government has come up with a method to denature industrial alcohol so that it cannot be used in the manufacture of whisky, bootlegger Wally Baltzer (a decidedly pre-Kojak Telly Savalas) orders his chemists to work day night to come up with an antidote. Finally, Baltzer minion Russell Shield (Joseph Wiseman), an embittered cripple determined to "get even" with the world, develops a formula that will reclaim the alcohol and allow business to proceed as usual. Ultimately, Shield utilizes his evil genius to take over Baltzer's business--only to meet his Waterloo in the form of a two-timing woman. (Incidentally, actor Joseph Wiseman's limp is not an affectation, but was the result of an injury sustained during his previous Untouchables appearance in the episode "The Tommy Karpeles Story").
