Canon City Overview:

Canon City (1948) was a Action - Drama Film directed by Crane Wilbur and produced by Robert Kane and Bryan Foy.


Solid ensemble work and location shots highlight this documentary-style narrative of a large Colorado prison break. Minute detailing of the break's preparations are featured, as is the contrast between the mild-mannered ring leader's appearance and the dangerous reality of his plan. Rounding out the cast are the warden and some of the guards from the real Canon City prison. Initially successful, the inmates are doomed to death or capture.
