    These guys were career criminals. I find it difficult to believe that they either never got caught, or lived law-abiding lives after they escaped.

    I think they all drowned.

    I toured Alcatraz and never understood why you couldn't swim to shore? Rough current or not, Its not that far.... Let the tide take you.

    One of them went on to make a bunch of cool movies as an actor.

    And some forgettable ones as a director.

    Wow, I literally just finished watching the MythBusters episode on this. Great timing! They tried it for themselves and concluded that it would indeed have been possible for the three to have made it safely to shore.

    also if they knew how to swim. I'm barley know how to swim or keep afoot, in pool. So, imagine cold waters with currents and maybe sharks. I don't think I would survive too long if couldn't fight the currents and cold waters to make it to shore. I know it looks close, but water in the open sea is another monster.

    lol, these are one of the reason I love coming here, funny smart posts

    Yup saw that episode too. They did it with just the 2 hosts paddling, instead of 3 like the real escapees, and it seemed pretty easy.
