Alcatraz Preview

Alcatraz state prison lies on Alcatraz Island, 1.5 miles offshore from San Francisco in the San Francisco Bay. While no longer operational as a prison, it is famous for hosting one of the most elaborate prison breaks ever attempted. On June 11, 1962, inmates Frank Morris, John Anglin and Clarence Anglin left the island without official leave after having chiseled and drilled through their cell walls, constructed life rafts from raincoats, and left paper-mache dummy heads complete with human hair in their cells as decoys to fool the prison guards. While it is unknown if they survived the cold waters of San Francisco Bay, the 1979 film ‘Escape From Alcatraz’ (starring Clint Eastwood) recounts their dramatic escape. Notable inmates to grace the facilities of Alcatraz include such gangsters as Al Capone, George ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly, and James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. Do you risk hatching the same sinister plan, or might you get out by brute force alone?
