A young girl is raped while coming home from work. The trauma of the attack turns her away from her parents and her fiancée, and, unable to face society, she runs away and, using an assumed name, takes a job on an orange ranch. A young clergyman takes an interest in her, although she won't confide in him. When a ranch hand tries to kiss her, she relives her terrifying experience and nearly kills him. She is arrested but when her identity is established and the facts of her case are brought forth, the clergyman convinces the court that it is society that should shoulder the blame. He helps rebuild her faith and send her back to her parents and fiancée. Written by

I saw this little (only an hour and 15 minutes) movie last night, remarkable for it's subject matter (rape and its aftermath) and notable because it's director is Ida Lupino. It was interesting because rape is not a subject that was often depicted in dramatic features, albeit a B-level feature in the early 50's. The story was told in an honest way, and after I got used to the avoidance of the term "rape", substituted for "criminally attacked" (hey, this was the 50's and it did have to get an MPAA rating) I was kept interested for the rest of the film.
