Convicted is a 1950 American crime film noir directed by Henry Levin and starring Glenn Ford and Broderick Crawford.[1] It was the third Columbia Pictures film adaptation of the 1929 stage play The Criminal Code by Martin Flavin, following Howard Hawks's The Criminal Code (1931) and John Brahm's Penitentiary (1938).[2]

Plot

This prison drama is the story of Joe Hufford (Glenn Ford), a man convicted of manslaughter. George Knowland (Broderick Crawford) is the warden who understands Hufford, helps him adjust to prison life and recognize that he has a future after release. Hufford witnesses the murder of an informer by another convict, Malloby (Millard Mitchell), but he sticks to the prison's "silent code" and refuses to talk, even though it means he will be accused of the killing. He is locked in solitary confinement. In the end, the real murderer confesses and Hufford escapes the electric chair. He obtains his release and, having fallen in love with the warden's daughter, (Dorothy Malone), ensures he has permission from Knowland to pursue a relationship with her.

Cast

Reception

The staff at Variety magazine wrote, Convicted isn't quite as grim a prison film as the title would indicate. It has several off-beat twists to its development, keeping it from being routine. While plotting is essentially a masculine soap opera, scripting [from a play by Martin Flavin] supplies plenty of polish and good dialog to see it through."[3]
