The new warden of a small prison farm in Arkansas tries to clean it up of corruption after initially posing as an inmate.
Bob Rafelson started as director, but was replaced by Stuart Rosenberg.
I don't know who's in there or what's going on, but the warden of Wakefield prison is out here, and we're probably coming in!
The movie supposedly takes place in Arkansas (although this is never explicitly stated, it is clearly indicated to be in the South, and likely near Texas and Louisiana). However, on the vehicles you can clearly see the OHIO license plates displayed. The movie was filmed about 3 miles west of Junction City, Ohio.
