Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Priscilla Dean was one of the major star names of the early 1920s. By the time the all-talking quickie Behind Stone Walls was made, however, Ms. Dean was taking any job she could get. Here she plays an adulterous wife who kills her lover. Eddie Nugent, Dean's loyal stepson, confesses to the crime himself and is carted off to prison, but eventually the real murderer's conscious gets the better of her. Top billing in Behind Stone Walls is bestowed upon Robert Elliot, who plays (as ever) the hard-nosed investigating detective.
