Birdman of Alcatraz

Great age makeup. Burt Lancaster is totally believable. Edmond O'Brien provides frame and some narration. I cannot for the life of me figure out why such was included, except maybe to emphasize the contemporariness of the movie. I amuse myself by imagining O'Brien as the Bishop character from Alien with Burt in the role of Ripley. Think about it.
