Castle on the Hudson
Egocentric gangster Tommy Gordon (John Garfield) thinks he's so above the law that even when he's sent to Sing Sing, he's sure he'll be in line for special treatment. Slowly, and painfully, he realizes that his fellow hoods on the outside want him on the inside. Tommy is slowly rehabilitated by a caring warden (Pat O'Brien), who even grants him a day-release to visit his hospitalized girlfriend, Kay (Ann Sheridan). But when Tommy bumps into a bitter rival (Jerome Cowan), trouble looms.
