Overview

Yvette Mimieux delivers a sensitive, nuanced performance in a role that could have easily spread into a cheap exploitation turn in Jackson County Jail. Mimieux plays advertising executive Dinah Hunter, who leaves Los Angeles and a promising career after she discovers her lover has been cheating on her. Determined to start fresh in New York City, she gets into her car and heads east. Picking up some young hitchhikers along the way, she ends up stranded in an out-of-the-way western town after being beaten up and having her car stolen. Thrown into the local jailhouse on trumped up charges, she finds herself at the mercy of a psychopathic guard who further beats her and then rapes her. Dinah kills the jailkeeper and goes on the lam with fellow jailhouse inmate and down-home radical Coley Blake Tommy Lee Jones. The sheriff's department engages the couple in a wild car chase through a parade commemorating the United States' Bicentennial, as Dinah and Coley try to break free to the open road.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This nightmarish, surprisingly subversive thriller is one of the best and most memorable films to emerge from New World Pictures during their 1970's heyday. Donald Stewart's script is pulpy enough to retain a drive-in appeal but believable enough to have a visceral emotional impact and is populated with interesting, complex characters. More importantly, it offers a grim, powerful critique of the American Dream, an idea best expressed in monologue about the country that Tommy Lee Jones delivers during the midsection of the film. Jackson County Jail also features strong performances from Yvette Mimieux as the beleaguered heroine, whose reactions are subtle but believable to the horrors she experiences, and Tommy Lee Jones, who suffuses the role of a seen-it-all con with an effortless charisma. Finally, the film's appeal is sealed by the direction of Michael Miller, who maintains a high level of quality in the performances throughout the film and carefully blends drama with action while sustaining an ever-building mood of tension. He also delivers a finale that is as emotionally shattering as it is exciting. In short, Jackson County Jail is one of the lesser-known classics of the drive-in era and well worth the time for cult movie fans.
