The inside story

Officially, nobody ever escaped from Alcatraz. Unofficially, many people believe that Frank Lee Morris – a lifetime criminal – achieved the impossible in 1962 after two years as a prisoner at Alcatraz. His amazing story was made into the famous 1979 Clint Eastwood movie Escape from Alcatraz.

Morris had already escaped from a number of prisons when he arrived on The Rock in 1960. With a few other convicts, he began to collect materials to make tools that would be used to dig into the prison’s ventilation system. The group also fabricated rafts from raincoats, lifelike dummies, and even an electric drill from a vacuum cleaner motor.
