One of the dirtiest, grittiest crime noirs to come out of the 1950s.
It's about a man, Jerry Barker, that kidnaps a sick child, holds him
hostage and asks the father for ransom money for the safe return of the
child. Barker gets his money but the boy ends up dead and Barker in
prison. He became known as The Ice Man in the news papers and well
hated in prison for killing a child. Barker's troubles become worse
inside the penitentiary.
Great casting, superb acting, cinematography is beautiful and a story
that can leave you on the edge of your seat.
A worthwhile crime-prison film to watch. It is really rough at times
but a darn good film. Great to see this one again!
