| Charles Boyer in jail
I saw the American version of "Big House" 35 years ago and was quite impressed and haven't seen it since. I just saw the french version with Charles Boyer (I'm not very fond of), André Burgère (quite bad), and André Berley (so great as Butch). The best scene is the final riot (wah the shot of the arrival of the tanks), and that kind of mutiny was often seen in prison movies like "Brute Force" or "Revolt In The Big House" (with Gene Evans, Robert Clarke and the incredible Timothy Carey), I guess "Big House" was the first prison movie. Now, I have to see again the version directed by George W. Hill with a much better cast.
