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.
