Parole, Inc.

Parole, Inc. is a 1948 American film noir film directed by Alfred Zeisler and starring Michael O'Shea, Turhan Bey, Evelyn Ankers and Virginia Lee.


FBI agent Richard Hendricks lies in a hospital bed, dictating the results of his investigation for a report to the California governor. In long flashback scenes, the investigation is reviewed. Following a number of paroles granted to dangerous career criminals, the governor and state attorney general suspect corruption with the state parole board. Hendricks investigates undercover as an ex-convict attempting to buy a parole for a criminal partner currently in jail. He infiltrates the social circle of another recent parolee of dubious character, Harry Palmer, and asks him how to purchase a parole. The perpetrators of the scandal are secretive and willing to take extreme measures to prevent their exposure.
