14 April 2001 | michaelRokeefe
Well directed prison drama.
Anatole Litvak directs this remake of 20,000 YEARS IN SING SING. Very faithful to the original starring Spenser Tracy. Tommy Gordon (John Garfield) is a mobster with a super ego. He does not worry about his prison sentence, because he figures his connections on the outside will make his 'time in the can' easier. Enter the stern, but kind hearted warden (Pat O'Brien) and the stand by her man girlfriend (Ann Sheridan)and we have the typical players of a basic prison drama.

Garfield plays the role with more attitude than Tracy did. Also starring are Burgess Meredith, Henry O'Neill, Guinn Williams and Jerome Cowan. Hard to notice any change in script from the first version eight years earlier. Very good opener for a Litvak double header that also features CONFESSIONS of a NAZI SPY.
