Infamous inmates mobster Al "Scarface" Capone, "Machine Gun" Kelly, and Robert Stroud, aka the Birdman are only some of the violent, desperate criminals who were sent to Alcatraz Island, called "The Rock" a penitentiary known for its harsh conditions. This true crime story tells in detail the story of life on The Rock its transition from a Spanish fort to the maximum security penitentiary and of 14 ingenious escape attempts by the prisoners. Most notable perhaps was Frank Morris, whose daring plan of escape was the basis for the memorable 1979 Clint Eastwood movie Escape from Alcatraz.
