Summary
  • [Night editor] While on an adulterous rendezvous, a police lieutenant and society woman witness a murder. They can't report the crime without revealing their own infidelities, a dilemma which leads to blackmail, double-crossing and a second murder attempt. A couple having an illicit affair witness a murder while on a romantic rendezvous and can't report it without exposing their infidelities
  • [One girl's confession] Mary Adams works in a tawdry waterfront restaurant where the owner not only maltreats her, he also cheated her father out of a fortune years ago. The owner acquires $25,000 in an illegal transaction, which Mary promptly steals, hides, confesses her crime and serves a short sentence. Freed, she goes to work in a restaurant owned by Dragomie Damitrod and when he gets into trouble over a gambling debt she offers to help him by telling him where the $25,000 is hidden and she will loan him the amount he needs. But circumstances indicate that he has stolen all of the money and she clouts him on the head with a whiskey bottle, apparently killing him
  • [Women's prison] Amelia VanZant is the sadistic supervisor of the titular prison. Unable to establish any sort of relationship with a man, Amelia takes it out on her long-suffering inmates. When prison psychiatrist Clark tries to improve conditions for the women, he too is targetted for destruction by the vituperous Ms. VanZant
  • [Over-exposed] A voluptuous blonde becomes a successful commercial photographer. The beauteous picture taker becomes involved in a blackmail plot when she goes to work for a Confidential-type magazine, nearly losing her life to mobsters
