From the Back Cover
How does bitter convict Robert Stroud cope with a lifetime of solitary confinement? The answer, in a sense, comes from above in the form of a feeble sparrow he finds in the isolation yard. Stroud brings this newfound companion to his cell, nurses it to health and, from that point on, theres no turning back. Despite having only a third grade education, and no hope of parole, Stroud becomes a renowned ornithologist and achieves a greater sense of freedom and purpose behind prison walls than many in the outside world will ever know.
The finest prison picture ever made, this inspirational and compelling classic stars Burt Lancaster in an Oscar-nominated performance as Stroud the convict who, in his power to heal birds, finds the power to heal himself.

Karl Malden always gives a first rate performance but the star of the show is Lancaster, a truly brilliant performance in surely his best ever film. The film length of 2hrs 23mins lends to the claustrophobic atmosphere and at times you feel as though you are in prison with Stroud, such is the way this fantastic filmography is shot. A pre-Kojack Telly Savalas (with hair) adds great support though at times a little bit hammy.
The dvd visually is good but the sound is a little disappointing, at times it sounds as though the actors have a lisp whenever pronouncing a word that has an "s" in it. That aside, it really is worth an evenings viewing.
