Birdman of Alcatraz (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
The one and only Burt Lancaster stars in Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) as Robert Stroud, the real-life two-time killer who, during decades in solitary confinement, remade himself as one of the world’s foremost experts on birds — this despite never having finished the third grade.  Sensitively directed by John Frankenheimer (The Train, The Manchurian Candidate) and stunningly shot within the basic confines of a prison cell by Burnett Guffey (Bonnie and Clyde), this landmark film features an exquisite score by Elmer Bernstein, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
