A stellar cast features in this powerful, sympathetic drama tracing the contrasting lives and often faltering progress of the inmates of a women s prison.

Based on the best-selling semi-autobiographical novel by Joan Henry a writer and former debutante who would further draw upon her own prison experience for the novel and classic film Yield to the Night The Weak and the Wicked is directed by Henry s future husband, Oscar-nominated J. Lee Thompson. The film is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Jean Raymond, an upper-class woman who has become addicted to gambling, is given a twelve-month prison sentence resulting from her inability to pay her debts. At first she is overwhelmingly depressed by life in the women s prison; gradually, however, her misery is relieved by the many close friends she makes there.
