WOMEN'S PRISON 1955
U.S. film. Women in prison films have been around a long time. It's a genre with timeless appeal and this one's got it all—except nudity and blatant lesbianism (although, it is hinted at). C'mon it's 1955! It's got an intensely sadistic, borderline psychotic female warden played by Ida Lapino. There's the new "fish," mental torture, beatings, a riot, a sympathetic prison doctor. And, this movie even has a twist—the prison is co-ed and occasionally a male prisoner slips over to the female side to get some loving!

A female inmate gets pregnant and in an attempt to find out how the male prisoner found his way over to the female side, the female warden beats the impregnated female. The beating eventually leads to the woman's death and the female inmates start a riot. They take control of the women's side of the prison and exact revenge on the warden. The warden goes insane.

Jan Sterling is excellent as a street-smart, wise-cracking jailbird. Ida Lupino, Jan Sterling, Cleo Moore, Audrey Totter, Phyllis Thaxter, Howard Duff, Warren Stevens, Barry Kelley, Gertrude Michael, Vivian Marshall, Mae Clarke, Ross Elliott, Adelle August, Don C. Harvey, Juanita Moore. Women's Prison!
