Birdman of Alcatraz (released in other English-speaking countries as "The Man of Alcatraz"), the classic 1962 John Frankenheimer Kansas Leavenworth prison convict crime biography melodrama ("Inside the rock called Alcatraz they tried to chain a volcano they called 'The Bird Man'!"; "Based on the book by Tom Gaddis"; the true story of double murderer Robert Stroud, sentenced to life in prison, who, after years of anger, adopts a baby bird, and ends up becoming one of the world's foremost bird experts, all done while serving his life sentence in Leavenworth Prison) starring Burt Lancaster (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; in the title role as Robert Franklin Stroud), Karl Malden, Thelma Ritter (nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film), Neville Brand, Edmond O'Brien ("as Tom Gaddis"), Betty Field, and Telly Savalas (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; billed as "Tony Savalas"). Note that if you only knew of Robert Stroud from this movie, you would think him a pretty saintly man who made a few youthful mistakes and suffered the rest of his life because of a system that refused to forgive him. But actually, that is a fiction that was created for the film. If you are interested in knowing more, you can easily look up his real life story, which is far more complicated and depressing than how it was presented in the movie.
