Escape from Alcatraz (1979)

(PG) 112 mins

Synopsis: A dramatization of the one possibly successful escape from the notorious prison.

Original Music by: Jerry Fielding

Director: Don Siegel

Writers: J. Campbell Bruce (book), Richard Tuggle (screenplay)

Serious Jest:  (Worth Watching)  I like prison-break movies, and Alcatraz was an especially-interesting prison.  This is a fairly-decent film, made more interesting by the fact that it was based on a true story.  I wish there had been more buildup for some of the characters’ relationships, though.
