one of the earlier prison break movies and certainly sets the bar high. Great performance from Clint - clever little bits make it a believable and solid film - holds its own even now.

Description: Frank Morris (Clint Eastwood) arrives at Alcatraz in 1960 after having successfully broken out of several other prisons. He seems to inspire respect or hate just by his presence. A brutish prisoner (Bruce Fischer) ties to kill him when he dosen't respond to his sexual advances; the meticulously chilly warden (Patrick McGoohan) knowing his background throws out a challenge — "No one has ever escaped from Alcatraz"; a black con (Paul Benjamin) gives him all the dope on the power structure; a mild-mannered prisoner (Frank Ronzio) with a pet mouse relates to him like a brother; and an old man (Roberts Blossom) who retain ...

“Tight, moving, big character duel between stubborn escapist Eastwood and never admit defeat Patrick McGoohan (he is excellent).” read more

My Top 100 Favorite Movies (100 movies items)

"סיפור המבוסס על סיפור אמיתי המספר את סיפורם המרתק של שלושת האסירים היחידים שהצליחו אי פעם להימלט מכלא אלקטרז השמור היטב והידוע לשימצה. פרנק מוריס (קלינט אייסטוד), שודד הבנקים הערמומי, הוא המוח שעמד מאחורי פרטי הפרטים של תוכנית הבריחה המבריקה והמצליחה.  השחזור הריאליסטי צולם"

"December 16 It's been bugging me that I haven't seen too many Clint Eastwood movies, so I decided to see this one. Very great escape movie which I'm kind of surprised it was rated PG back in the day."

"10/12/2012 (rewatch) Joskus tenavana ensimmäisen kerran olen elokuvan nähnyt, mutta ilman arvosanaa ollut aina tähän päivään asti. Onhan Eastwoodin vankiladraama pakoyritykseen ja juonitteluun asti oikeasti varsin näppärä, mutta en nyt silti mitään elämää suurempaa saanut tästä irti. Hahmot ovat kaikki ihan näppärästi kirjoitettu ja koko passelin 100-minuuttisen kestonsa ajan elokuva pitää hyvin ottessaan."
