  • Theatrical release: October 1, 1949. TRAPPED was the first movie on which Earl Felton (1909-1972) worked with director Richard Fleischer. Felton (who was sometimes credited as Earl Felton, Jr.) wrote three thrillers for Fleischer; TRAPPED, ARMORED CAR ROBBERY (1950), and THE NARROW MARGIN (1952). The latter was remade in 1990 as a vehicle for Gene Hackman. The fruitful collaboration between Felton and Fleischer also produced a comedy--THE HAPPY TIME (1952)--and two striking adventure movies--20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1954) and BANDIDO (1956). George Zuckerman (1916-1996) also worked on the screenplay of TRAPPED. Between 1947 and 1957, Zuckerman wrote, or co-wrote, the scripts for 12 movies and provided the story for five more. He is best known for writing the screenplays of director Douglas Sirk's two best movies--WRITTEN ON THE WIND (1956) and the beautiful TARNISHED ANGELS (1957). Bryan Foy (1896-1977), the producer of TRAPPED, was one of the Seven Little Foys. When his mother Madeleine Morando Foy died in 1918, Bryan's father, vaudeville entertainer Eddie Foy, kept the family together by putting his children into his act. In 1955, director Melville Shavelson told their story in THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS, with Bob Hope starring as Eddie. Bryan Foy began producing movies with the Ken Maynard vehicle CALIFORNIA MAIL in 1929. He went on to produce more than 140 movies, including HOUSE OF WAX (1953) and CRIME WAVE (1954) which were both directed by Andr De Toth.
