The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopaedia.

"The Untouchables" is an American crime drama that ran from 1959 to 1963 on the ABC Television Network, produced by Desilu Productions. Based on the memoir of the same name by Eliot Ness and Oscar Fraley, it fictionalised Ness' experiences as a Prohibition agent, fighting crime in Chicago in the 1930s with the help of a special team of agents handpicked for their courage, moral character, and incorruptibility, nicknamed The Untouchables.

The book was later made into a film in 1987 (also called The Untouchables) by Brian De Palma, with a script by David Mamet, and a second less-successful TV series in 1993.

A powerful, dynamic, hard-hitting action drama, and a landmark crime series, "The Untouchables" won Series Star Robert Stack an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series in 1960.
