A Better Ending :)

Have you watched the film Catch Me if You Can? A true story about Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, doctor, and legal prosecutor.

The film was splendid! Though it did leave me hanging and wondering what else there was at the end of the story. This movie has a nice sense of humor, especially the part when Abegnale acted as the substitute teacher of his new school and when the chase for him began to set. It turns out to be a funny movie, though it seems to stray a little bit too far from reality, but it was just based on his true life story anyway. However, it did make me smile, i mean, "laugh" a bit, and was captivated by the main character's brilliant mind, that if he only stayed on the right path, maybe, he would have had a promising future.

I like to put a different ending to the story, :)..
It may end up this way, Frank Abegnale who, at 19 years of age, successfully posed as Pan Am pilot and earned money from cashing forged checks at various banks, would be tracked down by the FBI, extradited and jailed for passing millions of dollars in bad checks.
But because of his skill in imitating and detecting such negotiable papers, he was considered as an asset by the FBI for plotting fraudulent checks.
He was credited for this and was considered as a big help and fortunately not to be thrown behind bars for his committed offenses.

After years of work in his specialized field, he was soon released as a FREE man.
Well! The End....:)
