Alcatraz Reunion: America's Worst Criminals Return to the Rock

With the 70th Anniversary of Alcatraz Penitentiary fast approaching, National Park Service Ranger John Cantwell invites every known ex-Alcatraz inmate – and their former cell house guards – back to the Rock for an ‘Alcatraz Alumni Gathering.’

Against the backdrop of these colorful characters and their imminent rendezvous, Alcatraz Reunion traces the history of the iconic island, and its mysterious transformation from notorious prison to tourist Mecca.
