The Weak and The Wicked

Time Out says

Gambling debts land Glynis Johns in stir, where she's befriended by streetwise Diana Dors in this homegrown tilt at women-in-prison melodrama (from Joan Henry's novel Who Lie in Gaol). The focus is as much on the events that put the girls behind bars as on the inmates' daily grind, and if it doesn't exactly look hard-hitting these days, the performances (Dors especially) are game enough to avoid crassness.
