Actually a surprisingly good film for its time. Real issues about prison life are presented in a straightforward manner. A good script moves this film along as well as a cast of fine actors. Think of it as an OZ from the 70's
Amazing feat of early adventure documentary filmmaking. It's hard to imagine a film of this caliber being made now much less in the 20's.
