(Henry Levin, 1950) Release date: 26 June 2023 Standard Edition Blu-ray
Convicted brings Glenn Ford (The Undercover Man) and Broderick Crawford (The Mob) together in a claustrophobic film noir look at life behind bars.
Locked up for manslaughter, Joe Hufford witnesses a prison murder, but refuses to break the criminal code of silence despite the encouragement of understanding warden George Knowland, and the very real threat of the electric chair...
This remake of Howard Hawks’ The Criminal Code is a riveting prison drama, directed by Henry Levin (Journey to the Centre of the Earth), and co-written by William Bowers (The Web).
