After inspiring the screenplay for James Cagney’s White Heat (1949), for her next project, screenwriter Virginia Kellogg clandestinely arranged for herself to be incarcerated for a spell to help expose the true dirt on life inside a women’s penitentiary, which served as a blueprint for our feature, Caged, ushering in the era of Women in Prison flicks that we all know and love today.

Caged (1950) Warner Bros. / P: Jerry Wald / D: John Cromwell / W: Virginia Kellogg, Bernard Schoenfeld / C: Carl Guthrie / E: Owen Marks / M: Max Steiner / S: Eleanor Parker, Hope Emerson, Agnes Moorehead, Ellen Corby, Jan Sterling, Betty Garde

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.

And after a glut of 3-D releases in late 1953, it wasn’t until March of 1954 before the Island saw another 3-D release hit the Grand. And with the advent of the more user friendly Cinemascope, the writing was already on the wall for Stereo-Scopic films, especially when you consider that last ad, where the theater dumped the gimmick, despite the ballyhoo’d new and improved glasses, to polish off the run after the weekend.
