Gorman Hendricks playing Gorman staying overnight at a Bowery flophouse in ON THE BOWERY, a 1957 film by director Lionel Rogosin. Since many men slept in a room, chicken wire was used around each bed to protect from others theft. It might also have been so hotels could meet laws about single room occupancies. ON THE BOWERY was restored by Cineteca del Comune di Bologna and distributed by Milestone Film.
