Synopsis

Clarence Carnes, an Indian from Oklahoma who as a teenager was the youngest convict ever incarcerated at Alcatraz following a gas station holdup/murder, is the central figure in this fictionalized, glorified B-movie account by screenwriter Ernest Tidyman of how Carnes spent decades hatching various escape plans. Most of the other characters in this four-hour film are equally fictional, the main exception (apart from Carnes) being Robert Stroud, the famed Birdman of Alcatraz (played by Art Carney), who turns up periodically to give him counsel and fatherly advice. Initially, this was more pointedly titled "Alcatraz and Clarence Carnes."
