awsome movie

this is one of the most under rated movies of all time.

eleanor parker really did deserve an oscar for this performance, the entire cast is excellent as well. agnes morehead shows there was very much more to her than endora on bewitched, that is for sure.

all parents should make it a point to share this film with their kids. it is on a par with the documentary "scared straight" of the 70's. it is so powerful, it will cancel many of the "cute prison" films out there.

they simply made FILMS in those days, not movies. got their point accross artisticly, not with simply emitting streams of profanity, and sex.
