Alcatraz Can’t Hold Us
So says every warden on today’s podcast, Alcatraz was the most secure prison ever constructed. Film directors, of course, took that as a challenge and gave us movies about prisoners with dreams too big for the famous San Francisco jail. These famed inmates will try and escape one way or another. We watched “Birdman of Alcatraz” (1962), “Escape From Alcatraz” (1979) and “The Rock” (1996).
