Description by OLDIES.com:

Framed for manslaughter after he breaks a story about city corruption, reporter Frank Ross is sure he'll prove his innocence and walk out of prison a free man. But that's now how the system works at Rocky Point Penitentiary. There, cellblock guards are vicious, the jute-mill labor is endless and the powers Ross fought on the outside conspire to keep him in. Frank's hope is turned to hopelessness. And he's starting to crack.

Two of the screen's famed tough guys star in this prison movie that casts a reform-minded eye on the brutalizing effects of life in the slammer. James Cagney "hits a white-hot peak as (Ross,) the embittered, stir-crazy fall guy" (Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide). And George Raft (Cagney's friend since their vaudeville days) portrays racketeer Hood Stacey, who may hold the key to springing Ross.

Product Description:

A reporter, framed and sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit, befirends a mobster in the pen. Half of the story is completely implausible but Cagney's performance is superb.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Each Dawn I Die
Although innocent, reporter Frank Ross is found guilty of murder and is sent to jail. While his friends at the newspaper try to find out who framed him, Frank gets hardened by prison life and his optimism turns into bitterness. He meets fellow-inmate Stacey and they decide to help each other.

Plot Synopsis:

A reporter, framed for murder and thrown in prison, becomes hardened and becomes an even bigger critic of the prison system than before.

The Best George Raft Movie Ever! Movie Lover: from BEEVILLE, TX US -- April, 25, 2013

This is definitely George Raft's best performance. He seems so happy to be a heroic martyr, giving his life for his friends. This movie makes it look like it would be fun to hang out in prison with Cagney, Raft, and Maxie Rosenbloom! Raft and Cagney make a dynamic team. George Raft is at his most handsome and cool! This is my favorite movie!
