Escape From Alcatraz

Based on a true story, this film is about the only successful escape from Alcatraz. Clint Eastwood stars as the man who does it, and he does an excellent job in his role. The film is highly intriguing, specifically witnessing the escapees' interesting method of escape! It's not a great film that some may find a little dull, but if the plot seems interesting at all to you, then you ought to see it! Try to spot Danny Glover in his debut and barely noticeable screen appearance.
