Accidentally incarcerated.
22 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who you associate does matter, and for sweet Valentina Perkins, it lands her in hot water. She's incarcerated at a medium security prison for being associated with racketeer Anthony Caruso, and because the fed's are on his trail, she's targeted as well. In one minute out of observation, and escaped in the next scene. This is a sloppily written crime thriller that doesn't establish enough of a serious back story to make the audience feel any connection to care about the characters.

Robert Rockwell's also involved, with Dani Sue Nolan appropriately bitchy as a married woman jealous of Perkins and out to discredit her with Rockwell. This only spends a few minutes behind bars, with an amusing bit by the always funny Queenie Smith. I liked the film noir style set-up, but saw no reason for the title, especially since there's obviously no petticoats and the women's prison subplot is extremely minor. Obviously influenced by the same year's "Caged", this pales in comparison.
