Superstar Clint Eastwood and director Don Siegel re-team for their fifth film in this fascinating account of the only three men ever to escape from the infamous maximum security prison at Alcatraz. In 29 years, the seemingly impenetrable federal penitentiary, which housed Al Capone and 'Birdman' Robert Stroud, was only broken once - by three men never heard of again.
Eastwood portrays Frank Morris, the cunning bank robber who masterminded the elaborately detailed and, as far as anyone knows, ultimately successful, escape. Patrick McGoohan is a superb counterpoint as the suspicious warden.
Filmed on location in Alcatraz, this gritty and realistic re-enactment of the true story has all the power one expects from an Eastwood/Siegel movie.

Escape From Alcatraz

I have just seen this movie for the first time, and having only just visited Alcatraz while on holiday in San Francisco, I could relate to the movie so much more. It has a good story-line, and the acting is good, but it's just nice to see that it comes with none of the usual, unnecessary Hollywood rubbish that's in so many movies. I certainly enjoyed this movie, and is well worth watching again. I highly recommend it.

clint eastwood is the best

escape from alcatraz is a great movie its self but for clint eastwood to star in it just tops it off great film u guys
