* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The real Young was in fact convicted of bank robbery, and had several other convictions under his belt before this as well. The assistant warden did not maim him with a razor. He also killed [=McCain=] months after he was released from solitary, not an hour after, and it remains unclear what the motive was. Young didn't die in Alcatraz, he was sent to another federal prison and served out his sentence, then did time in state prison for a murder which took place during one of his robberies. He broke parole in 1972 and disappeared-no one knows what his eventual fate was.
