Safe in Hell, the first film in the Return to Forbidden Hollywood, opens the series on Wednesday.
Here's what one online reviewer wrote: "The first time I watched Safe In Hell, I couldn’t quite believe how good it was -- so I watched again and, if anything, I admired it even more the second time. For me this is one of the strongest early Wellman films I’ve seen yet, with all the terseness of his best 1930s talkies, and the feeling that not a scene or line has been wasted. The cinematography by Sidney Hickox is also striking. It is full of dark shadows and unusual angles, and the heroine is constantly seen through bars, or just her eyes or her feet glimpsed."
