Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

In this promotional short for the MGM feature Le point de non-retour, the "rock" of the title is Alcatraz Island, which housed a US federal prison that closed in 1963. Alcatraz is one of the many locations used in the feature film. As this short opens, former Alcatraz prisoner John Giles tells what life was like for the inmates. Director John Boorman and several of the film's stars voice their own thoughts about being at Alcatraz for location shooting.
