Street Corner is a 1953 British drama film. It was written by Muriel and Sydney Box and directed by Muriel. It was marketed as Both Sides of the Law in the United States. While not quite a documentary, the film depicts the daily routine of women in the police force from three different angles. It was conceived as a female version of the 1950 film The Blue Lamp.
The three plotlines focus respectively on an 18-year-old girl who is caught shoplifting, a female army deserter who becomes involved in bigamy, and a baby who is abused by stepparents. The film climaxes in a police dog attack on a criminal.Peggy Cummins as Bridget Foster

The Movie Review Warehouse said of Muriel Box's direction, "she doesn’t do anything terribly innovative with the camera but she does know how to tell a story effectively, which is often a rarer skill in the film world."
