Caged Heat location: the prison: Lincoln Heights Jail, North Avenue 19, Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles

Jonathan Demme, who went on to direct Silence Of The Lambs and Philadelphia, started his directorial career like so many in the 70s with exploitation king Roger Corman.

This women-in-prison melodrama was filmed in the old Lincoln Heights Jail, 421 North Avenue 19, Lincoln Heights, in Los Angeles, a veteran location seen most famously in the 1954 version of  A Star Is Born, 1954 and for supplying interiors for the original A Nightmare On Elm Street.
