Women in men's prison

As the plot line said, it's not a women in prison as inmates tale, here but the contrary. I did not know that existed, women as guards among men - and no matrons please - Men who did not touch or even see a gal for years. Wow!!!We find strange things in the USA, such as lonesome patrol men in Arizona Syate for instance. Pretty dangerous isn't it? Well, back to this TV movie, we can watch it as a sort of documentary through a simple classic prison story. No real lead here, even Stella Stevens as the expected new guard who discovers the human jungle from the "good" side. No major surprises. Usual male inmates portraits beside. Yes, the foreseeable prison film, but a good time waster. One unbelievable scene: when Stella Stevens gets alone in the yard trying to put a riot down.
