Escape from Alcatraz

Visible crew/equipment: In the non-widescreen version, a hole in the ceiling and a microphone can be seen picking up the dialogue between Patrick McGoohan and Clint Eastwood in the warden's office.

Factual error: In the opening scene that shows San Francisco scenery there is a shot of a large TV tower called Sutro Tower. The film takes place in 1960 and Sutro Tower wasn't built until 1973.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank Morris arrives at Alcatraz, he has to take all his clothes off for a routine check. When the guards escort him to his cell you can see him wearing a pair of white boxers, but in the next scene (still walking) he is naked again and when placed into his cell you can see him wearing a pair of pants.

Question: In the beginning of the movie when we see Frank Morris(Eastwood) getting out of the car and onto the boat,why wasn't he cuffed? The guards later cuff him when he is on the boat and would be difficult for him to escape.

Chosen answer: I believe the director is trying to lure us into thinking that Eastwood is a good guy as he usually plays the hero. However that myth is shattered when he is cuffed.

Question: Why did the warden hate the fact that Doc painted a picture of him? Did he think he was mocking him?

New this month Chosen answer: The portrait was deliberately done as an unflattering caricature to mock the warden, thus offending him.
