A Degree Absolute!

Aug 18, 2021

Maximum Fun? More like maximum security! Maximum Fun podcast network founder and San Francisco native Jesse Thorn joins us this week to tunnel through the crumbling walls of Escape From Alcatraz, the 1979 Clint Eastwood-starring dramatization of the real 1962 prison break, featuring Patty McG as…The Warden. Stunt casting doesn’t get any stuntier, though Glen and I differ on exactly how much The Artist Formerly Known Only as Number Six contributes to the 115-minute picture in his roughly 10 minutes of screen time.


Escape From Alcatraz

Directed by Don Siegel

Screenplay by Richard Tuggle

Based on the book Escape from Alcatraz by J. Campbell Bruce
