Caged (1950) –Hope Emerson-sadistic matron right out of NOIR hell!

On TCM tonight 1/24/17– Caged (1950) – A very disturbing NOIR directed by John Cromwell with Eleanor Parker as Marie Allen a teenage newlywed sent to prison for being an accessory to a robbery, Agnes Moorehead as Ruth Benton, sympathetic reformist warden, Oscar nominated here Hope Emerson as Evelyn Harper, the sadistic matron right out of NOIR hell. I must issue a warning to cat lovers-it might be hard to deal with the very disturbing fate of the kitten found in the jail yard that Eleanor Parker tries to make it a pet.
