Ed interviews 1954: Alcatraz designer and writer, Gene Mocsy:
"My father sat me down when I was a kid and told me how he had escaped from a prison camp when he was nineteen. I got pretty obsessed with escape stories after that. I remember flowcharting an escape from Alcatraz in algebra class in junior high; I did a multiple-route story with a lot of dead ends. I think it shocked the teacher."
