Movie Info

After a group of convicts escapes from prison, they take refuge in the wilderness. While most of the crew are ruthless sociopaths, Jim Canfield (Glenn Ford) is an innocent man who was jailed under false pretenses. When Canfield and his fellow fugitives reach an isolated farming settlement where the men are all away, it creates tension with the local women. Things get more dire when rumors of hidden money arise, and Canfield discovers that the man who framed him is part of the community.

Audience Reviews for The Secret of Convict Lake

  • Jul 01, 2015
    Decent drama with a western setting. What distinguishes this from the many like it is the cast. Only in studio era Hollywood would a routine western have a cast roll that consisted of Glenn Ford, Gene Tierney, Ethel Barrymore, Zachary Scott, Jeanette Nolan and the great Ann Dvorak, whose final theatrical feature this was. At a brisk 80 minutes this keeps the tension taut throughout.
