One night of the eighteenth century, in the depths of the mountain, a human being is lost and finds a small temple. In the moment when he enters the room space is transformed into a completely different world.

Alcatraz is the most secure prison of its time. It is believed that no one can ever escape from it, until three daring men make a possible successful attempt at escaping from the most infamous prisons in the world.
Larry Hankin is one of those faces that you'll immediately recognize but whose name you don't know. He's made guest appearances in a bazillion shows over the years and in the case of "Solly's Diner", he's not just acting but doing practically everything! The film begins with a weird guy, Sometimes Jones (Hankin), trying to rob a lady in a late night diner. However, in the middle of his robbery, ANOTHER robber arrives and holds up the place! Jones' reactions, however, are just plain bizarre and he soon tries to work out a deal where they both can split the money. And from here, it only gets weirder! Overall, despite a cheap looking print (after all, the film is over 30 years old), the film is quite cute and worth seeing. Not brilliant but well done. By the way, two other VERY familiar faces to TV but whose names you'd never recognize are also in this short--Paul Willson and Roger Bowen.
