While gang boss Al Capone is serving a prison sentence for tax evasion, his organization is still active. Special agent Eliot Ness and his incorruptible allies work tirelessly to smash the criminal empire, while Capone's number two, Frank Nitti , runs the Chicago Outfit .


On April 20, 1959, the film produced by Desilu Productions was released in the United States and was nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing Achievement in Television.
