Thank you! I've got some good ones coming up this winter! Subscribe to my blog if you like. Cheers, Rick. For fans of this brilliant film-noir prison movie, the harrowing head-shaving scene was via a specialty-made wig that Perc Westmore designed so it could be shaved and look real.

Certainly there are many parallels between the two stories. Marie Allen Eleanor Parker is a young woman who is pregnant at the time she is incarcerated. Because she was in the car at the time that her husband committed a robbery, she was charged as an accomplice. Some of the women are kind to her and attempt to help her survive in the prison.
The year-old Parker convincingly plays year-old Marie Allen, given a one-to-fifteen year sentence for accessory to an armed robbery during which her husband was killed. Marie is given light duty by the prison-reform minded superintendent Ruth Barton, but sadistic old-school ward matron Evelyn Harper has other plans. Tensions flare when Marie finds a kitten outside the prison laundry and takes it in, and a catfight over the cat between Marie and Harper escalates into a full-scale riot! Marie is given three days in solitary by Barton, but before serving the cruel Harper shaves her head. Parker was justly nominated for an Oscar for her performance, as she transforms from young innocent into hardened criminal during the course of the film.
