Review

Hammer Films, just before their success in the horror field, jumped on the band-wagon for women's prison films that had been rolling in Britain and America since the success of 'Caged' in 1950. Beverly Michaels (sent to prison on the slimmest of pretexts), Joan Rice, April Olrich and Hermione Baddely are among those looking grim, while Thora Hird makes the most of one of her best film roles as the indomitable Granny. An odd film, in that footage was added with Hollywood actors (Jim Davis, Richard Travis, Paul Cavanagh) for its release in America as 'Blonde Bait'.
