Hi, I am looking for the title of a black and white film possibly french and was possibly shot in the 1950's.. It was set in a prison on and really only centred around one main character. He was poorly treated. And the prison could possibly of been set on an Island (not sure). Any help is much appreciated. Thanks. blackpatz.

Perhaps it is "Papillon." Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman are inmates in prison, and are eventually sent to an island.
