Plot Synopsis:

The one and only Burt Lancaster stars in Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) as Robert Stroud, the real-life two-time killer who, during decades in solitary confinement, remade himself as one of the world's foremost experts on birds-this despite never having finished the third grade. Sensitively directed by John Frankenheimer (The Train, The Manchurian Candidate) and stunningly shot within the basic confines of a prison cell by Burnett Guffey (Bonnie and Clyde), this landmark film features an exquisite score by Elmer Bernstein.
