The Ivory Tower

This Television Episode refers to The Mark of Zorro
Nucky mentions that he should grow a mustache like Douglas Fairbanks from The Mark of Zorro. This is actually an anachronism as this episode takes place in early 1920, and this movie didn't come out until late 1920.
Nucky is paid a visit by straight-arrow Agent Nelson Van Alden, who feels that Nucky has pinned a crime on a scapegoat. After using his recent windfall to buy presents for his wife Angela and mother Gillian, Jimmy is forced to pay Nucky a larger sum of money. Margaret is visited by both Van Alden and Nucky's brother, Sheriff Elias Thompson, each seeking a different side of her story as to the death of her husband. After the funeral of James "Big Jim" Colosimo, Chicago gangster Al Capone has a violent encounter with an inquisitive reporter. Nucky contemplates the upcoming election with his aging mentor, Louis "the Commodore" Kaestner.
