There is a completely new theory out there, I won't get into that, but that same Marshall is on the other story, It is way more believable than this one.
Alcatraz, the search for truth.
The Marshall looks 10-15 years younger in this, when I saw this available on Amazon Prime, it said it came out in 2017. I figured it was the same story. Then it went in a new direction, so not sure how this came out this late, and this close to the other story. (IMDB says 2015)
Parts I think were true: * I do think they got away, as not one body, not one piece of clothe, nothing was found of them. Which by all accounts is rare. * I think the Alan West part of the story is true. * and I think the it not being a secret in the jail before it happened, is essentially true.
BUT........my reason for saying this story is total non-sense, is there it would be impossible for 10-20 people to keep this a secret. For 50+ years, a Clint Eastwood movie about it, nuns, multiple prison guards, the uncle of the narrator, the family members that raised 60k (=$482k,, today), PLUS paid off the guards? Give me a break.
IMO, that is enough.There were way too many people in on this, but also, why would you take a boat all the way to Seattle? If I was the getaway guys, I'd want to get them an hour or 2 up the coast, and get on land no where near SF. Not still be on a boat for the next day, or so. SF could've called the coast guard. Its 800 miles from SF-SEA, even if they had a boat that went 50 mph, it would take 16 hours.
I hope I can edit and add later, as there were other things that didn't add up.
