The company she keeps 1951 non filter cigarette
Released from prison after serving two years on a check-forging charge, Mildred Lynch changes her name to Diane Stuart and moves to Los Angeles.
Parole officer Joan Willburn finds her a job at a hospital. Diane repays her by stealing Joan's boyfriend, Larry Collins, after he comes to the hospital to visit a patient.
Diane hides the relationship from Joan and hides her past from Larry. Once she finally finds out, Joan graciously accepts the new relationship but warns Diane that to get married, she must first seek approval from the parole board, which will be under a legal obligation to contact Larry.
Despite all the help Joan has been, Diane accuses her of trying to sabotage her romance and also her parole, after Diane is arrested for a drug theft at the hospital for which ex-convict Tilly Thompson is responsible. She runs away until Larry lets her know that, thanks to Joan, the charges have been dismissed.
The film recorded a loss of $315,000.
