Storyline

A desperate young woman is caught taking part in a department store extortion racket and sent to jail. When she's let out on parole, she schemes to ruin the life of the man who wouldn't give her a second chance, the man responsible for her time behind bars. Taking advantage of the man's inebriated state, the woman stages a phony marriage and, knowing of the man's estranged wife, blackmails him with bigamy charges. Forced to keep up appearances as the happily married couple until the woman's parole runs out, the man and the woman grow fonder of each other than either would dare to admit. Written by Jimmy L.

Improbable but Charming
15 October 2009 | by (So. Cal.) – See all my reviews

If you find yourself sleepless at 3 am and you've got an hour and fifteen minutes to kill with Turner Classic Movies, you can do worse than this charming romance that, while mostly predictable, takes you places and keeps up a good pace.

"Parole Girl" comes with a competent cast, pre Hays' era sexuality, and a time capsule visit to 1930's America. I counted at least six improbable plot devices, but, oh--who cares? Bellamy was believable. And I fell in love with the intelligent, cunning Mae Clark.

What guy, sleepless at 3 am wouldn't hope to find himself in Bellamy's predicament with a woman as alluring and devious as Mae Clark's character?
