Young nurse Judy, played by Marian Marsh, and her friend Pepper, portrayed by Bernadine Hayes, land in the middle of a maximum-security prison during a raging flood and typhoid epidemic. When the institution's aging doc, Dale, played by Henry Wilcoxon, is overwhelmed by the spread of disease, an inmate with physician experience steps in to the rescue. And so does love-as well as a prison kingpin's plot to escape. Although "Prison Nurse: (1938) was one of several low-budget Republic films directed by James Cruze, of silent screen notoriety, strong performances in this gritty prison drama sets it apart from other B movies.
