Picks and Pans Review: Escape from Alcatraz
ABC (9-11:20 p.m. ET)
Running the gamut of emotions from grim to grimmer, Clint Eastwood stars as a tough con whose run-ins with sadistic prison warden Patrick McGooghan persuade him to plot a breakout from the fortresslike penitentiary. Don Siegel, who also teamed up with Eastwood on Dirty Harry, directed this brutally violent but suspenseful 1979 feature.
