Routine prison drama
19 September 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Ronnie Fraser was a well established character actor.In this film set in prison he plays the predecessor of Fletcher in Porridge.The production company Associated British tried in the trailer and in the press to make out not only that he was a new star but the new Bogart.Well clearly that was rather wishful thinking.Prison films of this era would come in 2 forms.Firstly the serious prison drama such as The Criminal or comedies such as Two Way Strech..This film seems to fall between both genres.This film verse uneasily between the two.Carole Lesley plays the waiting woman in what would be her last film.Her career faded out after this and sadly she committed suicide.This is a reasonable prison film but Fraser is no match for Ronnie Barkers Fletcher.
