Mary Ann Robinson, a young woman living in The Bronx, New York, with her neurotic, overbearing mother and kindly but ineffectual stepfather, is raped while walking home one night. Keeping the attack to herself, Mary Ann runs away, seeking to lose herself in Manhattan by renting a seedy flat and taking a job in a dime store. Overwhelmed by people's hostility and her own despair, Mary Ann tries to jump off the Manhattan Bridge, only to be stopped by Mike, a garage mechanic who takes her back to his modest basement apartment nearby. At first appreciative of Mike's kindness, Mary Ann becomes terrified when he refuses to let her leave. Is Mike really Mary Ann's rescuer - or is he another rapist? Written by

Mrs. Carter phoned. She wanted to know how you felt. I told her you were a little peaked, that's all. Anybody who calls, I tell 'em you're just a little bit down.

I taped this movie off the air some years ago and liked it enough to view it every once in a while. I think both Carroll Baker and Ralph Meeker did good work. Carroll Baker's Mary Ann Robinson had to get over her rape and Ralph Meeker had to find redemption for something in his past. Some may find the ending overly sentimental but I think that Carroll Baker's acting at that juncture was true to life and very appealing.
