Birdman of Alcatraz: As an inmate at Leavenworth prison, Robert Stroud has a series of confrontations with the guards and with the other convicts. When Stroud kills a guard, he is sentenced to be executed, and only his mother's impassioned intervention gets his sentence commuted to life imprisonment, which he must serve in solitary confinement. As he serves out his sentence in boredom and despair, one day he finds a helpless baby sparrow in the exercise yard. Stroud soon takes a deep interest in caring for birds, which gives him a new purpose in life, but which also brings new conflicts with prison authorities.

8.8/10 Very watchable Hollywood version of Robert Stroud's prison life. He was an intelligent but anti social individual. The movie stresses what you can do in restrictive circumstances. Good for multiple viewings.

Based on a real-life character (but story is fictionalised), this film just goes to show how classics are made. 5/5

3.5/5 ....I got hooked about 1/3 of the way into the movie, a long scene in a nest really pulled me in. It is a bit funny to see certain acting styles and nuances from that time period. Once you get past that, there are some very intense scenes. Very enjoyable.

one of the best movie in my list, great work by burt lancaster and very well directed by john frankenheimer, his other movies that i really liked are reindeer games, the manchurian candidate, 52 pickups, black sunday and ronin, a great director.

I remember reading an article describing Robert Stroud as a vicious, unrepentant killer, who was also disliked by most of his fellow inmates. Howbeit he did write books about bird diseases. Considering the year the film was releases and Burt Lancaster in the starring role, its no wonder Hollywood took such liberties in the movie. Regardless I found the movie interesting.
