With her husband ordered to the Russian front, Margot Bracken (Gail Patrick) returns to Hitler’s Germany for the first time in 10 years. Appointed section leader of the local youth movement, she finds herself responsible for the Nazification of a group of teenaged girls. Bearing witness to mercy killings, suicides, torture and pagan baptisms, Margot seeks to stop the atrocities before the SS puts an end to both her and her plans. A lurid exposé of the Reich’s subjugation of women, Women in Bondage was one of Monogram’s more elaborate productions, featuring inventive direction by Steve Sekely (Hollow Triumph) and a stellar cast that included Patrick (My Favorite Wife), Nancy Kelly (The Bad Seed) and H.B. Warner (Lost Horizon). Retiring from the screen in 1948, Patrick would later gain fame as the executive producer of Perry Mason, one of the most successful and longest-running courtroom mystery series in television history.
