Cage Without a Key

girl producer jerry douglas

(CBS, 3/14/1975, 120 mins). A high school girl gets trapped in a web of circumstances after accepting a ride with a strange boy who then forces her at gunpoint to assist him in a robbery during which he kills a clerk, and both are caught and charged with first-degree murder. Convicted and sent to a women’s detention center, the girl discovers that her horrifying experience has just begun. Several similarities, intentional or not, to the Patty Hearst case easily can be glimpsed in this movie.
