Marie Windsor & Beverly Garland lead the cast in this surprisingly entertaining little film. It starts off a bit slowly, but once it gets it's footing, it runs fast & furiously through it's paces, and - in spite of the tacky title - really manages to deliver! Mike Connors is somewhat wasted, but the ladies are in top form, especially Marie Windsor, who adds yet another memorable character to her long list of credits.

Police woman goes undercover in a women’s prison to learn the whereabouts of stolen diamonds. The pre-planned escape works and she and three other girls trek through the treacherous Louisiana bayou seeking a fortune that costs one of them their lives. Although shot in Pathe color (which has a tendency to fade and turn pink over time), the print used for this DVD held up remarkably well. It is a tiny bit grainy and a bit washed out in spots, but good color still remains. The movie starts off a bit slow but after five minutes it becomes fast-moving. Beverly Garland is a tough-as-nails escapee and involved in two cat fights. If you are a Beverly Garland fan, you’ll not only want this film, but “Gunslinger” (where she is a good girl battling the evil Allison Hayes). In both cases, the film quality is far superior to the horrendous VHS copies released years ago. Look for Ed Nelson in a small role as a cop at the beginning; Touch Connors became TV’s “Mannix” (under the name Mike Connors).
