Product Details


Product Description

Clinton T. Duffy (Paul Kelly) suddenly has a job few would ever want. He's the interim warden at San Quentin, given the job for 30 days after violence and corruption swept what was then the nation's largest prison facility. Duffy aims to make his few days matter, cracking down on notorious guards, wiping out a stool-pigeon network and hiring the institute's first female nurse (Joanne Dru). The reforms take hold. Duffy's 30 days would become 12 years. Based on his memoir, Duffy of San Quentin tells the story of the warden's pivotal early tenure through the prism of his interactions with volatile inmate Edward Harper (Louis Hayward). Filmmaker Walter Doniger guides the action. He next made the prison film The Steel Cage (with Kelly and Maureen O'Sullivan returning as the Duffys) and explored life behind bars again in The Steel Jungle. As a trivia note to this film: look for DeForest Kelly in the role of a detective.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Whole Story - But Okay May 10 2014
By Bernadette Koontz - Published on Amazon.com

The subject of the title of the film was a great warden who, through his resourceful innovative management skills did a tremendous job of reforming San Quentin Prison. This film does not quite do justice to the title's character. It takes a lot of poetic liberties with the real story of San Quentin under Warden Duffy's tenure. It would have been better to tell the story the way it really was instead of this drivel. One part that does seem correct, is the relationship between Clinton Duffy and his wife Gladys portrayed with sensitivity by Maureen O'Sullivan.
3.0 out of 5 stars Louis Hayward - Paul Kelly Thumbs UP May 30 2013

Louis Hayward, the leading actor and Walter Doniger the director put together a relatively low budget picture shot on location at San Quentin prison with a star or near in almost every part. Joanne Dru, Maureen O'Sullivan, George Macready and the unsung Irving Bacon. Produced independently and placed with WB for distribution, its success lead to a sequel, The Steel Cage, using left over footage and episodes of an unsold Duffy of San Quentin television series. For what it is, well done.
