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.

Problem Girls (1953)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Incredibly stupid mystery from Columbia about a new teacher (Ross Elliott) at a school for rich, troubled girls who comes across what could be a murder case. It seems his co-teachers might have several secrets about the identity of a certain student. The dialogue in this thing is so incredibly bad that I'd almost recommend the movie just so people could hear it. This film falls in the range of stuff like Reefer Madness with the exception that this film seems to have had a pretty good budget. Being a studio film the production is a tad bit higher than you'd expect for this type of film but the performances are so bad, so over the top and campy that it's impossible to take anything here serious.
