My Six Convicts is a 1952 American film noir crime drama film adapted from the autobiographical book written by Donald Powell Wilson (titled "My Six Convicts: A Psychologist's Three Years in Fort Leavenworth"). The film was adapted for the screen by Michael Blankfort and directed by Hugo Fregonese.

While vintage prints of Wilson's text can be found online,[2] the film adaptation has never seen a home video release. As such, it has almost faded into obscurity, and it is primarily remembered for Millard Mitchell having won a Golden Globe Award for his performance as Connie.

Plot

My Six Convicts is the true story of a prison psychologist (John Beal) and his attempts to get through to his incarcerated patients. While dealing with serious issues, the film was created in comedic form. While the film is true to the overall spirit of the book, dramatic license was taken with the adaptation and certain events (e.g., the failed prison break and the resulting death of an innocent inmate) are fictional and were created solely to add dramatic elements to the film.
