    Must be humiliating for a college professor to take orders from a guard who says "irregardless".

    Thanks for the upload.  I thought I had read or seen everything by Truman Capote, but slipped past me.  It's gritty and it did have me on edge.  Good film.

    In reality, Johnathan Paige was innocent, at most, it should have been ruled an accidental death, even Involuntary Manslaughter would have been too harsh a punishment, after all, the guy had just killed his baby.

    This is a true and accurate depiction of prison life as are the movies Blood In Blood Out and an Innocent Man. If you want to scare someone straight, this is the line up. In this movie, you don't see it coming until you do which is part of the realism. If one speaks up, game on. If one doesn't speak up,  game on. When to speak & how can cost you your life in prison or gain you respect. High stakes playing & living with no second chances. Prison is a horrible experience. Thanks to the Arse Robinson op

    What's this movie about

  18. Buzzard King51 says:

    John Cortland (Clu Gulager) was just a tad too fast on the trigger. Great double feature with this movie is "To Kill a Clown" starring Alan Alda, made the same year as this one. Very hard to find but worth watching if you can.
