GREAT PRISON FILM, WITH GREAT CLASSIC ACTORS !
11 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have always enjoyed prison films during the 30's and 40's, this film gave a very clear picture about Death Row in the early days. The detective work of Preston Foster(Matthews),"Law & Order", '53, who started his own DNA in the 1930's, trying to get fingerprints off of a piece of cloth and fabric fibers from a bullet shot from a man's suit jacket were new methods of crime detection. The prison guards using tear gas on inmates and the crude methods and sounds of hanging prisoners and their last meal requests made you wonder what really went on in prison's years ago. I was surprised to see a very young J. Carrol Nash (Nick),"Black Hand",'50, playing his favorite role, as a gangster. Nick tried to give his partner in crime a Mickey in his drink but it seemed to back fire on him! Max Steiner, the famous film composer of music even contributed to this film, but was uncredited. Ann Dvorak (Connie), "Blind Alley",'39, was a faithful wife to her wrongfully accused husband and almost fell in love with Preston Foster.
