Birdman of Alcatraz

Trivia: The book that this movie is based on is a fake. The author Thomas E Gaddis admitted he never met Stroud until 1962 in a courthouse in Kansas City for 30 seconds. His story came from his mother, ex-cons who knew him or he just made them up. Stroud was never allowed to see the film.


Trivia: In the film, The Birdman never actually kept birds at Alcatraz; he kept them at other prisons, but not Alcatraz.
