Good Second Part Of This Story

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!

While almost complete fiction, it is a very exciting conclusion to the two-parter.

This is the second part of a completely fictionalized account of Al Capone being moved from his prison cell in Atlanta to his new escape- proof cell at Alcatraz in California. While he really was moved from Atlanta to Alcatraz, the rest of the show is mostly hooey.

The show begins shortly after the train with Capone and other prisoners has left Atlanta. Ness and his men know that an attempt to free him will occur and it will be somewhere near Denver...but they need to do a lot of work to pin down the exact plan. Most of the episode, in contrast to the last, consists of Ness and his team's efforts.

This is a very tense and exciting episode...much more than the first part.
