Women's prison films have always had an appreciative audience. Perhaps
the first noteworthy one was "Caged" which starred Eleanor Parker.
Released in 1950, it garnered good reviews and great box office. It
also led to numerous inferior imitations, such as "Women's Prison"
(1955) which at least featured a scenery-chewing performance from Ida
Lupino as the wicked warden--(a role she would repeat, more or less, in
the 1972 TV movie "Women In Chains".) There was also 1962's "House Of
Women" which starred Shirley Knight. The seventies ushered in such
examples as the Roger Corman/New World productions of "Women in Cages"
and "The Big Doll House". Then came Jonathan Demme's take on the
subject "Caged Heat", after which the genre was pretty much left to
porno producers. But in 1982, one of the best films on the subject was
released. "The Concrete Jungle" was produced on a low budget and a
quick shooting schedule (but, then, weren't most films in this genre?)
and managed to deliver a gritty and tense story of one relatively
innocent girl's battle to survive a hellish female penitentiary.
When her slimy boyfriend Danny (Peter Brown) uses his unsuspecting
girlfriend Elizabeth (Tracy Bregman) to carry a stash of cocaine in her
skis, she is nabbed by airport security. After a speedy trial, she is
sent to the Correctional Institution for Women in California. There she
learns quickly that she must toughen up if she hopes to leave there in
one piece. She also eventually finds that the warden (Jill St John) is
not only cruel and unsympathetic, but in cahoots with an inmate Cat
(Barbara Luna) the prison's Queen Bee, who is her partner in a prison
drug and prostitution racket. When Elizabeth witnesses a murder
committed by Cat and her henchwomen, she spurns her attentions and
becomes her enemy. Meanwhile, Deputy Director Shelly Meyers (Nita
Talbot), aware of the drug and prostitution business run by the warden
and Cat, also suspects that Elizabeth has knowledge that could help her
convict the villains, and she begins to press her for information. This
does not bode well for Elizabeth, for by now, the warden is also
suspicious and seeks to destroy the girl before she can talk.
Lurid, (and undeniably sleazy at times), "The Concrete Jungle" is
nevertheless a fully satisfying melodrama, and one which tells a
convincing story. The supporting cast is full of exploitation-film
regulars, each of whom does a good job. Bregman is fine as the heroine,
St John is a chilling warden, and Luna gets the role of her life as the
vicious Cat who makes life hell for those who oppose her. Especially
noteworthy is Talbot as the crusading penal official. "Jungle's"
Producer, Billy Fine, would try to top the box office success of this
one with "Chained Heat" the following year, but that film (and most of
those that followed it) were really unintentional parodies of the
