    A 1 hour interview with Alvin "Old Creepy" Karpis, America's Public Enemy #1 in 1936. Produced by the CBC.

Alvin "Creepy" Karpis was the lone survivor of the close-knit group of thieves who terrorized and intruiged America. Only four men held the title of Public Enemy #1 during the infamous 1930 era. The others - Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger - all died violently.

J. Edgar Hoover claimed to have personally put the cuffs on the notorious Karpis, but during this interview Karpis reveals the truth about that event, as well as many other adventurous accounts of his days of robbing and kidnapping.

When Karpis was placed in Alcatraz his cell mates were Doc Barker, Machine-Gn Kelly and Al Capone. Thirty years later a young convict - Charles Manson - persuaded the old gangster to teach him to play guitar. Karpis's real, first-hand descriptions of crime legends often conflict with our mythical images.
