Big House, U.S.A. Reviews
Stars a fellow nicknamed The Iceman for his robot like personality, unfeeling, uncaring. He is ruthless to be sure. The inmates know it too. Oscar winner Broderick Crawford (Best Actor) is an inmate as well. Also, Lon Chaney Jr. is in this. Tough guy Charles Bronson (The Mechanic, Death Wish) also stars as inmate.
This is a story about prisons. Like it or not.
