Lived in Ossing, New York for a few years and lived only a few blocks from Sing Sing, I found this film to be quite interesting and very realistic. The photography inside and outside the prison showed just what Sing Sing was like in the early 30's. Betty Davis (Fay Wilson,) "Hell's House",'32, looked like a knock out in those days, as a very sexy looking blond that caused Spencer Tracy(Tom Connors),"Bottoms Up",34, to say to her that, '"She was So Hot", she drove him Crazy with Desire". Tom Connors was a big shot crook who thought he could control Sing Sing and make it an apartment suite. Louis Calhern, (Finny),"Duck Soup",'33, was a crooked lawyer for Tom Connors and also decided to hit on sexy Fay Wilson, while his client was working in Sing Sing on the Rock Pile. Great film classic, with great veteran actors and Betty Davis looking her very best.
