On a barren rock in the middle of San Francisco Bay stands America's most infamous prison. Long decommissioned, Alcatraz is now a popular tourist destination, welcoming people hungry for a glimpse of what life was like for the "worst of the worst" in the American penal system.
Among the felons that once called Alcatraz home, three stand out--Frank Morris and the brothers John and Clarence Anglin. In June of 1962, they accomplished what everyone assumed was impossible, a BREAKOUT FROM ALCATRAZ.
Drawing on contemporary accounts of the escape and interviews with FBI agents, former prisoners and wardens at "the Rock," this fascinating video details how the three men planned and executed their escape and explores the many questions that are still unanswered.
How did they hide their preparations from the wardens for over a year? Did they complete their escape or did Alcatraz's final, best defense--the waters of the Bay--claim them? And, if they did survive, how is it possible they have avoided detection by the FBI and U.S. Marshals for four decades?
BREAKOUT FROM ALCATRAZ is a fascinating, far-ranging look at the most famous prison escape in American history.
