Based on the real-life story of ex-con-turned-warden Clinton T. Duffy (Paul Kelly), this engaging prison drama finds the newly minted jail chief facing rumors of an escape plot just as he begins to institute reforms. He draws himself close to a hard-nosed inmate (Louis Hayward), seeing the potential to turn at least one man towards redemption. With Joanne Dru, Maureen O'Sullivan, and Joe Turkel. 78 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
