While awaiting his certificate to practice medicine, John Page takes a position the the secret reform school for rich girl-delinquents run by hard-bitten Miss Dixon. Page is forced to treat a girl called Mrs. Jean Thorpe, heiress to a large fortune and wife of athletic instructor Max Thorpe. He learns that the real Mrs. Thorpe is dead, and his patient is being kept drugged until she can come into the fortune, when Thorpe and Miss Dixon plan to kill her. His threat to expose them leads to his firing and Dixon's threat to report him for practicing medicine without a license.

Campy fun in the Ed Wood tradition
19 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Happened to catch this one on TCM today, and it's truly bad. So bad that it's kinda fun to watch. Hardly a moment goes by that the viewer's willing suspension of disbelief doesn't work at all. Picture an alleged schoolfor wayward girls of extremely rich families in the City of Angels. Imagine a faculty made up of castoffs and ne'er-do-wells desperate for work and willing to therefore place themselves under the thumb of an evil couple with a plot to steal the fortune of a billionaire oil man. Now imagine clumsy dialogue, wooden acting, melodramatics galore, and a few catfights between women in their 20s attempting to pass as teenagers. Loads of fun! Catch it if you can.
