Pic of the Day: “Revolt in the Big House” revisited

It’s time that we took another gander at the prison potboiler Revolt in the Big House (1958). Timothy’s Ed “Bugsy” Kyle is not happy that Al (Sam Edwards) is turning chicken. Red (John Dennis, on the right) and an unidentified actor look on uneasily.

Dennis found himself incarcerated with Tim in two other films: Convicts 4 (1962), this time as a prison guard; and Shock Treatment (1964), like Tim, uncredited as a mental patient. He also appeared in Head (1968), again uncredited, as a cop. He too was from one of New York City’s boroughs, the Bronx.
