    I can't quite pinpoint what's wrong with this picture... it feels like the moviemaking is indifferent. The script itself lacks depth. The premise offered possibilities and the cast was capable of offering more than delivered. Nonetheless, the film is worth watching., particularly because of Barbara Lang. She was considered a B-movie version of Marilyn Monroe and has a fascinating and sad personal story.

    1957! Taut, suspenseful prison escape drama with a coupla twists. PALANCE playing himself (as usual) & his twin bro. Saw it on THE MOVIE CHANNEL, 2.11.2021

    It's the prison version of "The Parent Trap" with Jack Palance in the Hayley Mills role. So what do you do if you want to break your identical twin brother out of prison? Switch places with him of course. It's a petty ridiculous premiss for a prison story but it does have a good cast besides Palance that includes the great Timothy Carey, Bill Erwin Edward Platt, and an uncredited Joe Turkel, who modern audiences will know as Lloyd the Bartender from "The Shining" or as Dr. Tyrell from "Blade Runner".
