Yield to the Night (also titled Blonde Sinner) is a 1956 British crime drama film starring Diana Dors as a murderer sentenced to hang and spending her last days in the condemned cell in a British women's prison. It was directed by J. Lee Thompson. The film received much positive critical attention, particularly for the unexpectedly skilled acting of Dors, who had previously been cast solely as a British version of the typical "blonde bombshell". The movie was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival.

Plot

Yield to the Night movie scenes

The storyline in Yield to the Night bears a superficial resemblance to the Ruth Ellis case, which had occurred the previous year. However, the film is based on the novel of the same title published in 1954 by Joan Henry. Coincidentally, Ruth Ellis appeared as an uncredited beauty queen in the 1951 film Lady Godiva Rides Again, also starring Diana Dors.
