      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The clumsily made melodrama, filled with banal dialogue and wooden acting, doesn't serve its progressive prison reform cause well. Rated: C Jan 29, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      william k Well-meant, above-average girls' penitentiary drama is low-budget and exploitative, but with a liberal streak for reform. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Blobbo appreciate chance to see teen girls Anne Francis, Rita Moreno. (Blobbo have secret crush on Altera.) Cheap movie go on 1/2 hour too long. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member "B" movie about social reform vs institutional bullying. Great script & casting - Henreid made more $ off this film than any other in his career! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member 50's exploitation fodder more notable as the screen bows of Anne Francis, Rita Moreno and Anne Jackson than anything else.
