Today over on Cinema Retro I review SEVEN MILES FROM ALCATRAZ, a peculiar little b movie from RKO Radio Pictures. It’s the day after Pearl Harbor and a couple of convicts doing time on the Rock want to escape because they’re afraid the Japanese might bomb the west coast next, including the prison. Two things worth mentioning about it. It’s the first film Edward Dmytryk directed for RKO, and one of the cast members is Cliff Edwards, better known as the voice of Jiminy Cricket.
