Brute Force 1947 Burt Lancaster Crime Drama
Stars: Burt Lancaster, Hume Cronyn, Charles Bickford
Brute Force Story Line. At overcrowded Westgate Penitentiary, where violence and fear are the norm and the warden has less power than guards and leading prisoners, the least contented prisoner is tough, single-minded Joe Collins. Most of all, Joe hates chief guard Captain Munsey, a petty dictator who glories in absolute power. After one infraction too many, Joe and his cell-mates are put on the dreaded drain pipe detail; prompting an escape scheme that has every chance of turning into a bloodbath.
The film is the epitome of the great, hard-hitting prison dramas of the 1930’s. The style in which it was filmed also makes it fall in the Film Noir category. This was only Burt Lancaster’s second movie but he is already a tough, powerful screen presence with his character one of the most respected in the prison community.

Another good Burt Lancaster film is Desert Fury. The daughter of a Nevada casino owner gets involved with a racketeer, despite everyone’s efforts to separate them. Unexpected things happen.
