Ladies They Talk About is a 1933 Pre-Code prison film about a woman sent to San Quentin. Based on the play Women in Prison by Dorothy Mackaye and Carlton Miles, the film stars Barbara Stanwyck, Preston Foster, and Lillian Roth.

Plot summary

Nan Taylor (Stanwyck) is accused of helping her friends rob a bank. Reform-minded David Slade (Foster) falls in love with her and gets her released. However, when she confesses that she is guilty, he has her imprisoned. Inside, she meets fellow inmates Linda (Roth), 'Sister' Susie (Dorothy Burgess) and Aunt Maggie (Maude Eburne), and prison matron Noonan (Ruth Donnelly). Taylor gets involved in a prison escape, has a year added to her sentence, and goes gunning for revenge when she is released.


The film was remade in 1942 under the title Lady Gangster, starring Faye Emerson
