Breakout is a 1975 action film starring Charles Bronson, Jill Ireland, Robert Duvall, John Huston, Sheree North and Randy Quaid.
Harris Wagner (Huston) frames Jay Wagner (Duvall). In order to keep him silent, Jay is incarcerated in a Mexican prison. In the actual event, Vasilios Basil Choulos flew a helicopter into the Mexican prison and broke a framed prisoner out. That prisoner had been framed and served 28 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
Duvall's wife Ann (Ireland) is unhappy at this turn of events and hires Nick Colton (Bronson)(a pilot in Brownsville, Texas) to fly into the prison and rescue Jay .
