plays real life convict Frank Morris who succeeded in his daring nighttime
dash from the island prison (or did he?) in 1979's Escape from Alcatraz.
Donald Siegel directs Eastwood, as well as Danny Glover in Glover's debut
feature. Morris and his co-conspirators made paper models of their own
heads to get past a bed check by guards. Today the Morris cell and others
are staged as they appeared during the escape
in a segment for "America's Most Wanted" on TV.
