Richard Matt and David Sweat’s elaborate getaway is already being compared to infamous jailbreaks-turned-films. But most cases are too mundane for the media. “If it was in a movie script you would have said it was overdone,” New York governor Andrew Cuomo said of the escape by Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat 34, who broke out of the Clinton Correctional Facility by drilling through their walls and navigating through drains, finally emerging from a manhole outside the prison. Guards did not realize the shapes in Matt and Sweat’s beds were dummies until 5.30am Saturday. The convicts left a sticky note behind for guards: a smiley face above the words “Have a nice day!” The escape scheme immediately drew comparisons to the Shawshank Redemption, the 1994 film and 1982 Stephen King novella, which involves a prisoner’s escape via chisel, ruse and sewage pipe. Matt and Sweat’s escape has also been compared to the 1962 escape from Alcatraz, in which three men crafted dummies to fool the guards, dug holes in their cells with spoons and set off the island on a makeshift raft, never to be seen or heard from again.
