The Big Doll House (Hill, 1971): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.15pm

This film (also being screened on September 10th) is part of the Pam Grier season at BFI Southbank. Details here.

BFI introduction:
The first of three deliberately campy, women-in-prison sexploitation pictures is set on a tropical Pacific Island. At the raggedy Prison del Inferno, 150 scantily clad, beautiful young women live as inmates. They are overseen by the sadistic female warden, Lucian. When a group of them try to escape, they use guns, attitude and sexuality to free themselves. The film proved to be the breakthrough for Grier.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
