 A marker comp for the promotion kit for the syndication of Paramount’s  The Untouchables  TV series. Promotion kits were sent to station managers to publicize the show, and they needed to be interesting enough so that managers would keep them displayed, and not either junk them or take them home for their kids. It was to be constructed out of wood, with all the items, except for the gun, to be real. In the drawer were to be files marked “FBI — Top Secret” with the bios of the actors and tapes of the show.
