5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS DORS MOVIE - GRTTY AND HARD-HITTING., 15 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Yield To The Night [DVD] [1956] (DVD)
Diana Dors' most prominent film - and the one most consider as the peak of her career.

This exceptionally good British movie - sometimes unsettling, is about a woman who's sentenced to be hanged for murder, but could get a reprieve. This film gives a great insight as to what it must be like to be awaiting such a sentence and possible decision, and would serve a good show for those who still believe in Capital Punishment. Diana Dors is outstanding as the woman whose fate hangs in the balance (no pun intended), and there's a stalwart performance from the striking and great actress Yvonne Mitchell who plays one of the Prison Officers. Mitchell's character appears to be matter-of-fact and emotionless, but even she is melted by the prisoner's awaiting fate.

With a great story and a fabulous cast this film could not go wrong, but will always earn Dors the recognition she truly deserves. It does go to prove however, that those who worked in such a profession when Capital Punishment was the ruling, could not have been human beings to have handled this type of thing and not be deeply affected by it. It's only a film, yet I still find it disturbing and difficult to watch...
