A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco.
Each morning and evening the cast and crew made their way across the bay to location by way of the Red & White Fleet, a charter tour service, whose boats also carry the 4,000 tourists a day who visit Alcatraz.
Congressman Weaver and esteemed members of the Special Armed Services Committee, I come before you to protest a grave injustice... It has to stop.
(at around 1h 45 mins) When the first missile is launched toward San Francisco, there is concern about it striking a stadium where a football game is being played. West Coast games have a 1pm start time for TV purposes, and generally do not open the gates until 12:15pm. If noon is the deadline, then no-one other than the players, stadium employees, and TV crews would be at the stadium. Yet when the stadium, Candlestick Park, the night lights are on, and the stadium appears full. The night lights would not yet be on.
