Originally a B film, *Blackwell's Island*, John Garfield's second vehicle, was bumped up to A status after the success of *Four Daughters* (1938).

 

As a tough reporter who journeys inside the prison system, Warner's seems to be trying to place him into the Cagney mold in this movie (and also the in the same year's *They Made Me a Criminal* ), but in his own rebel fashion, Garfield can't help being true to himself, which always makes for enjoyable viewing. This is a very rare film, so catch it if you can.
