Murder in the First

Factual error: Throughout the film they show exterior shots of Alcatraz. If you pay attention you can clearly see that the Warden's house is destroyed and all that remains is a shell. Also there is only 1 guard tower. Alcatraz had many guard towers but they were destroyed in the seventies by fire. The movie takes place in the late thirties.


Trivia: The hooker that Stamphill brings in to see Hill is played by Kyra Sedgwick, who is married to Kevin Bacon.


Henri Young: I got nothin'. I got nobody. I don't need a lawyer, I need a friend.

James Stamphill: When you try to win sometimes, you lose sight of th goal.

James Stamphill: I will ask you what I want to ask you.
Henri Young: And I answer what I want to answer.
James Stamphill: Fine.
Henri Young: Fine.
