I've just published another crime-related list on IMDb so I thought that I would give a link to it on here. It's a list that gives film poster depictions of people behind bars from 1920 to 2016. They're in release date order so anyone can easily find their preferred era easily. Any fans of the prison film genre please click on below to see if your favourites are included:-

https://www.imcom/list/ls026279558/db.

Cool list! I've bookmarked it, thanks :)

Your link is a bit mangled tho, it's https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026279558/

A few more suggestions:
Prison Shadows (1936) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0028140/
Girls In Prison (1956) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049265/
Jailhouse Rock (1957) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050556/
Reform School Girl (1957) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050890/

Thanks very much XhcnoirX. I'm very grateful for your additions. I'm amazed with your lightning-quick response. I didn't spot the prison bars on the Jailhouse Rock poster. I will add your four titles immediately and give you credit for those particular additions which I hope is OK.

Ah I hadn't noticed you already corrected your link, apologies! I just happened to be on here, that's why the response was so quick :)

Credit isn't necessary, but thank you... If I come across others I'll post em here...

Thanks once again XhcnoirX. I will be grateful for any more additions that you come across. I've just added 'Back Door To Heaven' (1939) to the list as well. Cheers.

Thanks for the reviews and/or links, folks! Those are always helpful.

I did promise to come up with a list of films somewhat similar to "The Black Doll" (in terms of atmosphere). Here are some which are set in isolated locations (stormy weather, etc.). They're mostly from the thirties.

One Frightened Night
The Black Doll
The White Cockatoo
Mystery House
While the Patient Slept
Murder by an Aristocrat
The Unholy Night (1920s)
The Man Who Would Not Die (1940s)
Before Dawn
Secret of the Blue Room
Murder in the Blue Room (1940s)
Midnight Mystery
The Ninth Guest
The Cat and the Canary (1920s, 1930s)
The Thirteenth Guest
The Thirteenth Chair
The Terror (Alastair Sim really steals the show here)
Seven Keys to Baldpate (I recommend the 1929 version)
House of the Long Shadows (1983....a surprisingly good adaptation of "Seven Keys to Baldpate", mostly thanks to supporting actor Vincent Price)
The Uninvited (1940s)
The Unseen (1940s)

.....and I'll post more once I think of them.

Thanks K for the list of 'Black Doll' similar films. I shall watch the 1939 'Cat and the Canary' tonight. I like Miss Lou and her spirit friends. "Sometimes they get into the machinery."

This week, I plan on watching some of the Ellery Queen episodes. I haven't seen them in awhile. I'll try not to drool over Ellery too much.... ha ha. He's very hot. The episodes are great, too.

I hope to be doing a bit of mystery book reading. I notice that my local bookshop has a display of Elly Griffiths books. She is a current writer who's mysteries are set in my home county of Norfolk. I've got one out of the library to see how I get on with it.

Her sleuth is Dr Ruth Galloway who is a forensic archaeologist. I've started with 'The Woman in Blue.' I shall know all the locations that she writes about. My local knowledge will give me all the scene-setting in my mind that I should need.

I was away for awhile so I barely got a chance to see anything, but I would like to finish the Ellery Queen episodes (some of them, anyway) this week and then turn to other films.

Most likely I'll be back to mysteries in the early fall. Summer is all about watching comedies.

Done with the EQ episodes. Most likely, I'll be back on this thread in September (no earlier).
