Criterion Collection Riot In Cell Block 11 Blu Ray
Inmates and the warden face off in a hostage crisis, with the media watching. Directed by Don Siegel.
Early in his career, Don Siegel made his mark with this sensational and high-octane but economically constructed drama set in a maximum-security penitentiary. Riot in Cell Block 11, the brainchild of producer extraordinaire Walter Wanger, is a ripped-from-the-headlines social-problem picture about inmates' rights that was inspired by a recent spate of uprisings n prisons.
