This has to be the best Chester Morris performance. I’ve always liked him, but he was never so tough and likable as he is here. I always saw something like a cross between Franchot Tone and future Ralph Meeker in Morris, hoping for the meatier Meeker to surface. Here, the Meeker comes forward, toughening up and de-blanding the Tone out of him.

The Big House" establishes its grim industrial setting with an introductory montage that, given the movie’s outsize set and shots of rhythmically trudging, identically uniformed prisoners, might have been cribbed from Fritz Lang’s"Metropolis." “The Big House” is also notable for its creatively percussive and contrapuntal use of sound.
