Description by OLDIES.com:
In true stories of fraud and deception from the closed files of the United States Treasury Department, agents investigate corruption throughout the nation in this classic television series starring Walter Greaza.
Green Feathers: United States Customs agents go after racketeers who are smuggling rare parrots across the US-Mexico border.
Iron Curtain: A sleazy criminal takes advantage of a troubled Holocaust survivor.
Slippery Eel: A local theater owner makes it a standard practice to cheat on his income tax return, believing he will never get caught.
Gentlemen Cheat: A tax evader settles with the Government by agreeing to raise the money he owes within 10 days. A suspicious agent, however, believes he is selling illegally hidden assets in order to make the payment.
FEDERAL MEN, a fascinating early television series (1950-1955), used closed Treasury Department case files as the basis for dramatic recreations featuring Walter Greaza as "the Chief." This compilation features four episodes, individually described below:
"The Case of the Slippery Eel" - The treasury men catch up with a cheating movie theatre proprietor.
"The Case of the Iron Curtain" - A traumatized ex-concentration camp inmate winds up victimized by a thug.
"The Case of the Green Feathers" - Someone's sneaking parrots into the country from Mexico.
"The Case of the Gentleman Cheat" - A tax swindler sells off secret assets to pay off the IRS.
