Sex & Nudity

Graphic rape scene, but only the beginning and immediate aftermath of the attack are shown. Carroll Baker remains fully clothed.

No actual onscreen nudity; Carroll Baker is seen bathing in a tub, and is less than fully dressed in some scenes.

Baker's rooming-house neighbor, played by Jean Stapleton, is a woman of a decidedly coarse nature, possibly a prostitute, who is seen entertaining a sailor in her room at one point.

Carroll Baker's character attempts suicide by trying to jump off the Manhattan Bridge.

A drunken Ralph Meeker attempts to embrace Carroll Baker; Baker kicks Meeker in the face while he's on all fours, blinding him in one eye.


No profanities or "four-letter words" in the dialogue.

Several scenes of drunkenness involving the Ralph Meeker character.

Graphic nighttime rape scene; attempted suicide on the Manhattan Bridge; a kick to the face; nightmare sequence featuring images of blank-faced schoogirls and the reappearance of the rapist.
