The Big Doll House (1971)

We enter the prison alongside three new arrivals who see first-hand how it's run and what life means for the women behind bars: violence and torture.
Pam Grier in a Jack Hill film is more than enough to have me staying for a screening, but Doll House was her first major role and she wasn't quite as impressive as she'd eventually become. It doesn't help that it's not a particularly memorable WiP film, or maybe my standards are set too high having been spoiled by the Japanese entries in the genre.
Pam's contribution to the soundtrack is worthy of praise, though.
Jack Hill regular Sid Haig plays a vital role as a sleazy delivery man.
