Storyboard Text

  • I'm off to see Al!
  • Machine Gun Kelly
  • Dear Al Capone,
  • Throughout "Al Capone Does My Shirts", Warden Williams lives in a "mansion" located on Alcatraz. The warden's home was larger than the apartment Moose lived in and was greatly embellished.
  • In Chapter 22, Al Capone's mother came to visit her son in prison. As she was entering the premise, the island's "snitch box", or metal detector, was set off by her metal corset. Embarrassed, Mrs. Capone left Alcatraz without seeing her son.
  • In "Al Capone Does My Shirts", Piper's mother, Mrs. Williams reads all the letters addressed to the prisoners on Alcatraz. If a message was deemed inappropriate, the letter would not be given to the convict.
  • Although the warden's name was not "Williams", the warden lived in a rather stately house near the cell house on Alcatraz. Gennifer Choldenko stated that the real warden had a daughter, similar to Piper Williams.
  • Mrs. Capone was actually caught in the metal detector during one of her visits to Alcatraz. According to Gennifer Choldenko, the metal stays on her corset had been sensed by the snitch box and she was stripped searched for her "weapons".
  • Often times, the wives of guards would help with sorting and censoring the convict mail. Guards would sometimes bring the letters home to their families. These letters were a subject of gossip among Alcatraz residents.
