    Years ago I decided to check out Frankenheimer’s major works, but I always held off on this one because I’d heard the real “Birdman” was a horrible person hated by even his fellow prisoners, and that this account was held in particularly low regard by people who already knew about him.

    Oh yeah? I had a feeling Lancaster’s doting bird doctor bit was a little too sweet.

    If you haven’t seen The Train it’s damn near perfect, great flick.
