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. Page instigates a riot among the problem girls at the school that covers his rescue of the drugged girl to safety. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

No problem here...
20 September 2007 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Just a sharp, compact little B-picture partly written by Jack (Indestructible Man) Pollexfen. Unlike a lot of the "girls dormitory" pictures of the 40s and 50s-- largely a boring lot, save for GIRLS TOWN-- this one is lively and in some cases, very funny. Check out actor Anthony Jochim as a weird old doctor at the girls school, who despite having murdered his wife in days of yore proves to be of invaluable help to the sterling young hero investigating corruption at the school. The Mephisto Waltz sequence is a howl! Also lots of familiar faces from the B's: Beverly Garland, Mara Corday, Joyce Jameson... if TCM shows it again check it out!
