Women in Prison
27 August 1999 | by ClearSkySee all my reviews

This was a cheesy, poorly written TV movie. Plenty of cliches, and surprisingly, lesbian stuff. However, for 1980, this was worth watching because of Debra Clinger. It was sad too watch Carol Lynley at an all time low though. She used to be a movie star, what happened?
