A foolish thing
In the second of three films he was teamed with Rochelle Hudson, Glenn Ford
is a man who deliberately gets himself thrown in prison so he can get the man
who killed his father while dad was doing time. Hudson is Ford's sweetheart on
the outside and thinks he's done a foolish thing.
How right she is as Ford gets caught up in a power play between the toughest
con in the joint Barton MacLane and the sadistic head guard Cy Kendall. The
only friend Ford or any of the convicts have is the new prison chaplain John Litel.
Lots of good action scenes with all the proper prison cliches used. You know
we never do find out exactly what happened with Ford's father, but certain
assumption are made.
Men Without Souls is one mediocre prison flick.
