Before They Were Stars: Tommy Lee Jones in “Jackson County Jail”

The legendary Roger Corman gave a LOT of famous actors and directors their start in his low-budget exploitation films and you can also add Tommy Lee Jones to the list. Jones had one of his earliest roles in Jackson County Jail, a sleazy 1976 number produced by Corman about a woman who is imprisoned and abused by corrupt cops in a hick town. You can see Jones in this typically great 1970s grindhouse trailer.
