Midnight Express is a 1977 non-fiction book by Billy Hayes and William Hoffer about Billy's experience as a young American who was sent to a Turkish prison for trying to smuggle hashish out of Turkey to the US. An adaptation of the book was made into an American film of the same name directed by Alan Parker in 1978.



Interesting fact, when the drug smuggler is at the airport he is requested to remove his glasses, however he is asked in Maltese not Turkish, obviously it was filmed in Malta.
