Mr Blonde was an ex-convict, like Cady. You sure about them?

Also I thought "Dead Man Walking" was based on a true story.

Yes and no. She was real but Matthew Poncelet wasn't exactly. He was a composite of several prisoners that she had counciled. Check here - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112818/f...

"We're No Angels" (1955) - Joesph (Humphrey Bogart), Albert (Aldo Ray), and Jules (Peter Ustinov)

"There was a crooked man" (1970) - Paris Pitman, Jr. (Kirk Douglas), The Missouri Kid (Burgess Meredith)

"The defiant ones" - John 'Joker' Jackson (Tony Curtis), and Noah Cullen (Sidney Poitier).
are films you can check out for more movie convicts.

Grang,

I'll look at adding some of these guys, thanks for the helpful input! You've been extremely helpful on this PS in particular, so thank you!

You are welcome . I just thought of macheal caine's in the original "The Italian job". I think his name was Charlie Croker and of course John Bridger- but I prefer Donald Sutherland's version of him in the remake of TIJ than Noel Coward's in the original.

FYC-

Malik El Djebena from 'A Prophet'

I would have suggested Bobby Sands from the 'Hunger', but real-life criminals are excluded.



From your list, Derek VinyardNorton is such a terrific actor!

Yeah, Vinyard is a fascinating character!

I'd vote for Dr. Richard Kimble. Good poll, guy.

Riddick in "Pitch Black" . If I remember the movie right, he is ether an ex-convict, or a convicted prisoner in transit to another prison.

For fun, include these two Capt Kirk and McCoy, since, in "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" (1991), they were framed, tried, and convicted for the assignation of the Klingon High Chancellor, Gorgon, and sent to the Klingon prison planet, Rura Penthe.

Woody Allen's Virgil Starkwell in "Take The Money And Run" (1969). Hey, I might do a poll on his work before he won that Oscar for "Annie Hall" Some of his funniest works as an actor and or writer are pre-Oscar.

Another comedy: "Stir Crazy" (1980) (Gene Wilder) and Harry Monroe (Richard Pryor).

"Tough Guys". Another idea for a poll, the best or funniest of the Wilder/Pryor movies.

I doubt you will use this one, "Tough Guys" (1986), Harry Doyle (Burt Lancaster) and Archie Long (Kirk Douglas) are ex-convicts.
