Storyline

Idealistic and naive Dr. Jason arrives at a school for delinquent girls and immediately begins to try to make a difference in the lives of some of the inmates. Oblivious to the sadistic treatment of the girls by the matrons, it takes a rebellious girl named Loretta to open his eyes. Assisted by a female staff member, Jason finally gets proof of the abuse and threatens the head of the school with exposure unless he is given full reign to run things. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

This often forgotten movie is notable for having in the cast three actresses, very early in their careers, who became long term popular favorites. They are Anne Francis, Anne Jackson and Rita Moreno. All three gave fine performances showing the promise that they would all realize.
