Storyline

Suzanne, Renee, Nina and Marta all hate being in prison, being slapped and treated badly, and so all the girls are trying to escape. Madame Appel just causes chaos all the time, with her harsh manners. When Yvonne with her free-thinking ways is put in charge of the school for misbehaving girls, and asks them to tell her their complaints, they don't believe her at first. Yvonne is in love and about to marry the establishment's doctor, and it does not help that one teenage girl falls for him - and is corresponded. It's a hard life for the girls, and for the new female warden. Written by Artemis-9

Fantastic Film! Should of made it big! A+++++++++++++++++++++
4 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is rare to find but I have a copy of it on VHS which I purchased from a US hard-to-find video site, and loved it! Great acting ability from the adorable Glynis Johns and Verena Rice. Edna Best is a delight, Mary Morris shows real skills and Martita Hunt brings a lot to her role.

With the superb Director, Brian Desmond Hurst, and the well known Producer, Alexander Korda, the only reason I can think that this film did not do well is because I heard that the main star, Corinne Luchaire, got together with a German Nazi just after the films release.

Such a shame! Enjoyed the film greatly all the same and wish it could be released in the stores! A+
