Louis Hayward As Wrongly Convicted Felon
This is a well-done prison film,highlighting the efforts of Warden Duffy to reform the penal system,but the added story of our wrongly convicted anti-hero who goes from bitter con to someone who's transformed by love into a decent human.And the needed change of a corrupt prosecutor who's finally imprisoned who meets the attempts on his life head on until he's overwhelmed by the number of framed men he's responsible for.An unlikely "Romeo" is convinced to put aside his hatred for Winant,and to help him stay alive.He's rewarded with Winant's help in getting him cleared and released back to society.Kelly,Hayward,Macready,De Kelley all excellent here.SPOILERS!
Duffy A Great Film
Wonderful acting,but most especially George Macready.He's quite arrogant and hissable until Romeo saves his life and he works to right the wrongs he committed as a prosecutor.Star Trek's De Kelley has an all too brief appearance as the cop who arrests Winant (Macready).
Excellent Prison Movie
Watched on dvd last night.Louis Hayward,Kelly McMahon and others great,but the time Macready spends on screen is absolutely brilliant.He drips venom as the prosecutor,but once he lands in prison,he's mesmerizing in his skills as an actor.De Kelley plays the detective who issues the warrant for his arrest.
