Storyline

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 Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Ida Lupino's direction
12 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an incredible film! The scene where Mala Powers' character is stalked, right before the rape, is on a par with anything Hitchcock ever did. And the line-up scene, a bit later in the film, with its quick cuts from one potentially guilty face to the next, is truly suspenseful. A nationally known critic seems to think the filmmakers presented an optimistic viewpoint about a rape victim's recovery, but I slightly disagree. I would say that Ida Lupino's direction shows much more ambiguity, and that it is not going to be easy for the main character to continue rebuilding her life in a society like ours. How is she ever going to be able to trust a man again? This is thoughtful cinema at its best. Definitely worth seeing.
