Convicted (1950)
3 January 2012 | by (Portland OR) – See all my reviews

The trials and tribulations of a man sentenced to five years for an accidental murder from a mild fist fight. Very middle-of-the-road, routine prison drama, watchable but brings nothing new or exciting to the table. Despite having Burnett Guffey behind the camera, the photography is nothing special at all. However, it does feature an array of good performances. Glenn Ford is sort of dull (as usual) and once again Dorothy Malone is underutilized. But Broderick Crawford is almost always a blast to watch, even when playing an absurdly liberal warden (I know prisons sometimes have trustees, but allowing one to freely drive your daughter around the city, completely unsupervised?). And a lot of the great character actors show up, many of them classic noir faces: Whit Bissell, Ed Begley, Frank Faylen and especially Millard Mitchell.
