Description by OLDIES.com:
Ruthless crime boss Frankie Terris (Fred Keating) kills the son of his rival, Mannie Robbins, in a vicious street brawl. Terris is convicted and sentenced to 90 years at the infamous Alcatraz prison. Robbins plans revenge on Terris, vowing he'll never make it to "The Rock" alive. Murder and mayhem ensue as Terris must outwit hit-men and fellow convicts while traveling cross-country on the prison train. Featured player Linda Winters changed her name to Dorothy Comingore, and went on to star in Orson Welles' classic Citizen Kane. Clarence Muse, the erudite African-American lawyer, songwriter and actor of long-standing, was later inducted into the Black Filmmakers' Hall of Fame in 1973. Character actor and renowned dialectician Nestor Paiva is best remembered for his prominent roles in Mighty Joe Young, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Tarantula, The Mole People, Road to Morocco, Hold That Ghost and dozens of others.
In the classic 1930s drama PRISON TRAIN, a train filled with convicted felons is heading towards the notorious island prison of Alcatraz. A murderous gangster (Fred Keating) on board is planning his escape, but his attempt is threatened by the other prisoners. PRISON TRAIN is an action-packed drama starring Clarence Muse, Nestor Paiva, and Dorothy Comingore.
