Description by OLDIES.com:

Jack Holden is the only honest guard in San Quentin. A crooked deputy warden and a small group of incorrigible hardcore cons control the corrupt prison. When the deputy warden is murdered, Holden leads an outcry for reform. He is named Warden, and an inmate uprising puts him and his ideas to the test. The violent confrontation will either prove his theories or return San Quentin to its dark beginnings.

Director William Beaudine assembled a cast of genre reliables (including the villainous Charles Middleton) for this gritty, violent drama. Men of San Quentin was based on a story by journalist Martin Mooney, who had spent time behind bars and saw firsthand the horror of prison life.

Product Description:

Based on a true story, MEN OF SAN QUENTIN is a drama set amid the tension-filled cells of the legendary San Quentin penitentiary. Jack Holden is an honest guard who attempts to restore a modicum of sanity to a prison that is rife with corruption and has spiralled into a den of lawless inequity. Promoted to the position of warden after his predecessor is murdered, Holden faces many tests as he takes control and tries to restore order.
