“Escape from Alcatraz” quotes(1979)
Plot – Frank Morris is a criminal who has tried many times to escape from the US prisons, so he's transferred to Alcatraz, which is impossible to escape from. Morris makes some friendships there: Doc, the shy painter that cuts his fingers when he's forbidden to paint; Litmus, an Italian guy who calls himself "Al Capone"; the black English who protects the newcomer; Clarley, the undecided one who won't escape with them. Frank faces Alcatraz's hardness and its director's inhumanity. When Clearence brothers and John Anglin arrive to the penitentiary, Morris carefully plans a new escape. When they're discovered, the director says the fugitives must be drowned in the bay to cover himself. When he's recalled to Washington, Alcatraz is dismantled and the jail becomes a tourist attraction.
