"Untouchables" DVD Contains Arnaz Intros

Untouchables DVD

The Akron Beacon Journal stated that "The Untouchables" Season 1, Volume 1 DVD Set being released Tuesday, April 10 includes introductions for the series by Desi Arnaz. Rich Heldenfels of The Akron Beacon Journal reviewed the DVDs:

Besides the first 14 episodes of the series, the DVD includes a two-part telecast on Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse that began the Untouchables TV story. The two-parter was later re-edited into a single piece for movie-theater distribution under the title The Scarface Mob, and that's the way it appears here. As a bonus, the DVD includes the introductions for the Playhouse telecasts by producer Desi Arnaz and narrator-newsman Walter Winchell.

"The Untouchables" starred Robert Stack as Eliot Ness and was the first dramatic series created at Desilu Productions.
