The governor appoints lawyer Jeff Darrow to open an investigation on the reported cruelties inflicted on the inmates of the Bayou Reformatory For Women. The investigation is opposed by Mrs. Ballard, head of the prison, whose moronic brother, Cletus, is keeper of the prison bloodhounds. Nora Collins, once engaged to Jeff, but now an inmate because she had stolen to protect her brother, is resentful of prison methods and particularly bitter against the sadistic methods of a brutal prison guard named Darcy. Honey Blake and Kate unsuccessfully try to use Cletus in an escape attempt. But they try a second escape using Jeff, Nora and Mrs. Ballard as hostages. Mabry, Kate's gangland lover, hears of the escape and knowing she will go where she had hidden $50,000 gets there ahead of her.Written by

Having been cornered by the police "Honey Blake" (Beverly Michaels) watches as her mob boyfriend "Babyface" (Paul Savage) decides to go out in a blaze of glory and comes out shooting. Since she is unarmed she is taken prisoner and is subsequently sent to the "State Prison for Women" which is surrounded by swamps and has been compared to a "female Devil's Island". Anyway, while she may have been captured, her attitude is quite combative and as a result she is placed in solitary confinement on her very first day. It's at this time that an inspector from the governor's office arrives by the name of "Jeff Darrell" (Tom Drake) and he is alarmed by the conditions of the prison. Complicating matters is that his former girlfriend, "Nora Collins" (Peggy Knudsen) is a convict there and he feels somewhat responsible for her imprisonment. In any case, he promises to try to improve things but once he leaves things return to normal and one particularly hardened criminal named "Kate Morrison" (Carole Mathews) decides to take matters into her own hands. Now rather than reveal any more of this movie and risk ruining it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this was pretty much what one might expect from a grade-B "women-in-prison" movie produced in the 50's. I suppose the acting was adequate but the dialogue was obviously dated and the plot was rather basic as well. Additionally, the supposed location of the prison was obviously not in Louisiana as the terrain bore no similarity to that part of the country. In short, this was an okay movie and probably worth a look for those who enjoy films of this type.
