Ladies They Talk About
This is a women-in-prison movie -- from 1933! Starring a young Barbara Stanwyck! And did I mention it's . . . pre-Code? Well, the Hays Office existed by then, but they weren't cracking down yet. So there are bare shoulders, stockings, and an actual cigar-smoking lesbian or two. For the 1930s, it's really quite racy.
