Kudos to director John Cromwell for producing such a well-crafted, women's, prison picture that (Surprise! Surprise!) rises far above the usual pitfalls of being nothing more than pure exploitation trash.

As well - Kudos goes to both Eleanor Parker and Hope Emerson for their earnest conviction and sincere believability in the first-rate character portrayals that they delivered in "Caged".

This gritty, unsentimental, unglamourous, tough-as-nails Chick Flick from 1950 is, without question, the best prison film (focusing on women) that I have ever seen, bar none.

Yes. Caged is clichéd as only a prison picture could possibly be, but, with that aside, its cast, its director, and its screenwriter (Virginia Kellogg) were obviously so professional and self-assured about their involvement in the story that they were tackling that Caged literally stands tall as a shining gem of its genre.

From its despairing opening sequence, to its even more despairing final moments, Caged certainly succeeded in holding my unwavering interest and attention for its full 96-minute running time.

Yes. Indeed. I recommend this picture very highly.

P.S. - Think you're tough?.... Just wait till you see what happens in the scene involving Fluffy, the adorable kitten!
