Youth on Parole
26 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I liked this little film. It was made by Republic Studios, but has the look and feel of a Warner Bros. B-Film (that was shot mostly on A-Film sets). Marsh and Oliver get framed for a jewel robbery, do 18 months in prison, are released, fall in love, try to recover from the social damages that their time in prison have caused them and finally apprehend the real criminals all in about and hours running time. Having read the other comment about a song being cut out of the film for television sale, I realize now that the print of this film that I saw was indeed the T.V. print (but, the print was in marvelous condition). Marian Marsh is fun to watch, as usual. I've always liked her friendly manner and winning smile. Gordon Oliver does well as her boyfriend and Margaret Dumont is fine as their Irish landlady. Better than many of the B-Films that were released by the major studios of that era.
