Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
In this rough-and-tumble yarn, actually filmed on-location at the Georgia
State Prison, the cons are the heroes and the guards are the heavies. Eddie
Albert is the sadistic warden who'll gladly make any sacrifice to push his
guards' semi-pro football team to a national championship.
Reynolds plays one time pro quarterback Paul Crewe, now behind bars for leading State Police on a wild chase in a "borrowed" car. He agrees to organize a prisoners' team to play the guards. The warden intercedes to assure that his goon squad will meet only passive resistance from Crewe's Mean Machine. But the license to pound on their hated guards is a big incentive for murderers and thieves to learn strategy.
