A Rather Middling Movie
16 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Plot.

Female prisoners are shipped to Devil's Island penal colony.

They are indoctrinated into the prison life from abusive guards and then a new prison governor arrives with planned reforms.

I suppose this is a precursor to all those women in prison movies that followed. Unfortunately the available prints today are horrible. The color has turned ll red and the film is way dirty.

The print I saw had a bunch of poor splices in it too.

I'm not a huge fan of dubbed movies, but this has a bit of money in it and it's watchable. That's about all.

Rather middling.
