Canon City

“Based on the true story of a prison break in Canon City, Colorado. Warden Roy Best of the Canon City Prison plays himself in the film! Starting from a routine recital of prison life, attention slowly focuses on an innocent-looking inmate making crude revolvers and organizing 11 other inmates for the big break. A neglected classic of post-war Hollywood noir-realism!”
