simple and realistic
an airplane mechanic gets accidently caught up in a bungled drug bust by two bent cops and is sent to prison. Tom Selleck, always calm in his roles seems to take it lying down at first, but when he is constantly picked out by the usual jail hoodlums and is still haunted by the cops who framed him, he can take no more. dont listen to any of the negative comments for this film unless you prefer the comic book jail films like Stallones "Lock Up" (1989) because this film is realistic and the storyline is simple and NOT full of hero prisoners on a revolt who finally get the president himself to give an official pardon. Tom is always great in whatever he does and you can be sure that this is another great effort from him. i love the dialogue...like.."now you dont have a problem with that now...do you white boy" Not your type of movie? i wouldnt bet on that!!!

9/10

Trivia

Many of the film's prison scenes were filmed at the old Hamilton County Jail in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Jail, also known as the "Cincinnati Workhouse", had been permanently closed prior to the location filming of the movie. It had been built during the Civil War to house enemy troops and was still in use by Hamilton county and Cincinnati area police agencies as a jail as late as the 1970s. It was closed due to being "inhumane, cruel and unusual" by modern jail standards.

Jimmie Rainwood: I don't know anything... about anything.
Lt. Freebery, Head Guard at Prison: Well, you should know this. I can do anything I want with you in here.

Goofs

Rainwood is granted parole on his first appearance before the board, yet during his time in prison Rainwood was sent to solitary confinement twice for insubordination towards the Guard Captain and was also the primary suspect in the murder of another inmate. Based on the regulations used by the California Parole Board, it is highly unlikely that someone with Rainwood's prison record would have been granted parole.


Alternate Versions

Network television version used several alternate takes of scenes, with milder language.
