Tales from the Prison Yard - 6 Features

Fred Sears, Hal Ashby, Henry Levin, Irving Lerner,

DVD (Color / Black & White / Wide Screen)



Six classic prison movies on 2 DVDs. In The Last Detail, two sailors (Jack Nicholson and Otis Young) are assigned the thankless task of escorting a younger sailor to the naval prison over the course of one chaotic, pleasure-seeking week. In Cell 2455, Death Row, the real-life prison memoir of a convicted felon is dramatized in the story of Whit Whittier (William Campbell). In Escape from San Quentin, inmates Mike Gilbert (Johnny Desmond), Roy Gruber (Richard Devon) and Hap Graham (Roy Engel) bust out of the notorious prison. In Convicted, a district attorney (Broderick Crawford) tries to make amends to a wronged client (Glenn Ford) by becoming the prison warden where he was sentenced. In City of Fear, a jailbreak endangers all of Los Angeles when a canister of radioactive material goes missing with an escapee (Vince Edwards). And in The Valachi Papers, a low level Mafioso (Charles Bronson) must reassess his life while serving time.
