Movie Info

Caged, considered the best woman's prison film ever made, represents a union between realistic socially conscious drama and the more stylized world of film noir. Marie, (Eleanor Parker), is sentenced to prison for helping her husband in a small robbery. The prison is run by the sadistic matron Evelyn (Hope Emerson) who is secure in her position due to corrupt political influence. The film shows Marie's slow disillusionment with society and her eventual decision to become a prostitute in order to

Deemed harsh in 1950, Cromwell's melodrama about women in prison has lost its edge but the acting of Agnes Moorehead and Hope Emerson, as a monstrously facist matron, is good; the film still offers valuable lesson about how life in prison makes criminals

Ranked as the best women-in-prison film ever made, but even if this is so it still doesn't make it very good.

Audience Reviews for Caged

If The Big House is the grandpa of prison movies, then Caged is the grandma... or maybe the wicked stepmother. One of the best prison movies I've seen. Supposedly based on true incidents taken from a diary written in prison, albeit by an author who was in prison for research rather than a rap. Eleanor Parker deserved her Best Actress nom as the naive 19 year old girl who gets hard lessons about life while in jail as an accessory to armed robbery. Her transformation from innocent kid to hardened criminal was astounding. Hope Emerson's 6'2" prison matron, who believed prisoners should be treated like animals in cages, was brutal and hateful, leading directly to Parker's downfall. The downer ending I believe added to the film rather than dragged it down. Movies with such a large female cast (only two men that I can recall) don't normally have this dark a tone. No matter how you feel about prisons and prisoners, you need to see this. A first-class job from all involved.

The grandmother of all women in prison movies. All the cliches are here. The young innocent turned to a hard criminal life, the sadistic guard just screaming for her comeuppance, the seasoned old con. But its all well presented and has good to excellent performances from a host of great character actresses.
