Glynis Johns, Diana Dors and Sybil Thorndike star 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 further drew 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 with a gambling addiction, 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.
