Trivia

After filming was completed, Sammy Davis Jr. asked for and received permission to put on a show for the inmates. The warden set two conditions: no racial jokes (which could start a riot) and no sex jokes (for obvious reasons). Four thousand inmates attended the show, Davis told no racial or sex jokes, and the show went off with no trouble. See more »

Failed man is rehabilitated in prison by his artistic talents.
30 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

excellent cast and story of prison life thrust upon a desperate man who's only wish was to buy a present(Christmas) for his daughter.The robbery and murder of the store clerk is only secondary to the shame and humiliation he feels because of his own personal failure.His inability is further shown in his failure to adjust to prison life and his failed attempts at escape.This film is augmented by the strong supporting cast.
