Street Corner is a 1953 British drama film. It was written by Muriel and Sydney Box and directed by Muriel. It was marketed as Both Sides of the Law in the United States. While not quite a documentary, the film depicts the daily routine of women in the police force from three different angles. It was conceived as a female version of the 1950 film The Blue Lamp.[2]

It was shot at Pinewood Studios and on location around London. The film's sets were designed by the art director Cedric Dawe.


The three plotlines comprise a female army deserter guilty of bigamy, a toddler neglected and beaten by its stepmother and an 18-year-old married mother who's caught shoplifting and gets involved with a jewel thief. The film climaxes in a police dog attack on a criminal.


Critical reception

The Movie Review Warehouse said of Muriel Box's direction, "she doesn’t do anything terribly innovative with the camera but she does know how to tell a story effectively, which is often a rarer skill in the film world."[4]
