Good Second Part Of This Story
10 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What went wrong? How did "the Feds" figure out this excellent plan to free Al Capone, just before he is incarcerated in the new impregnable Alcatraz prison. Well, according to this story, it was good timing, good detective work and a lot of luck.

A few breaks here and there and Elliot Ness and the boys slowly unraveled Capone's plans which culminated in a shootout in the tiny town of Culverville, Ca.

In addition to Neville Brand playing "Al Capone," I liked Frank London in the role of "Benny Marcus." He was an interesting character, and a guy who turned out to be the key man in solving the "case."

This episode has a lot more tense moments than Part I of "The Big Train" and the 50-minute show breezes by. Excellent effort!
