Storyline

A teenager (Sal Mineo) fights to retain his dignity and self-respect against the brutality, sadism and cynicism of the "big guys" around him in the brutal world of a Georgia orphanage. The young man soon becomes involved with an escaping convict from a nearby prison. Through his experience with the convict - a man unjustly sentenced - he finds within himself the strength to stand up to those who abuse their power and hopefully restore his confidence.

Sal Mineo was Outstanding
8 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Have always been a great fan of Sal Mineo,( Les Henderson) who plays a great role in this film as an orphan in this school for boys who encounters some very dangerous men. Les's orphanage is located near a prisoner colony with harden criminals and he meets up with Rudy Krist, (James Whitmore) who becomes friendly with him and they both exchange words dealing about Les's great interest in boating. Les brings vegetables and fresh fruits to the guards and that is why Les is allowed to speak the the prisoners. Rudy is very interested in the boat that Les has because he finds this is a great way to escape from his captivity. However, there is a warden named Plug, (J. Carrol Naish) who runs this prison camp and he is rough and tough and will stop at nothing to kill anyone who tries to escape. This is a very interesting 1957 film in black and white and it is great to see such great veteran actors as J. Carrol Naish and James Whitmore give outstanding performances.
