Murder In The First

By Dan Gordon, starring Edward Asner, John Randolph, Arye Gross, and David Birney. This moving courtroom drama is based on a true incident that exposed the shocking conditions at Alcatraz, and led to the closure of the notorious prison. The tale begins when 18-year-old Willie Moore makes the biggest mistake of his life: stealing five dollars from a rural store that happens to contain a post office. Charged with mail robbery, he's sent to federal prison, and ultimately spends three years in solitary on the dreaded island of Alcatraz.
