[... thinks to herself]
Lorna: Is it me? Why can't they tell me what's wrong? Why can't he make love to me like the way he should? If he could only make me feel... the way HE feels when he... if he starts slowly... I'm a woman not just a tool. Tomorrow will make one year... happy anniversary to me. He's probably forgotten what day it will be...

Vivid memories of lust and violence ...
16 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Lorna Maitland was one of Meyer's rare "finds." Physically stunning but as easily engaged as was the earlier Monroe, one easily fantasizes a personal encounter with her. The river bathing scene, partially obscured by tree branches, makes you her willing voyeur; her eventual passionate response to the convict escapee who rapes her, tells you that you might also have your way with her should you ever somehow meet.

I found the violence in the film to be gratuitous albeit realistic and disturbing; as in Cherry, Harry, and Raquel, a later Meyer (color) film, the viewer is torn from (his) fantasy of passion and plunged into anger and terror. Why Meyer felt he had to mix the two escapes me, but therefore, his films are doubly memorable; along with the river scene, the shotgun blast from under the hood of the old car is equally etched.

Lorna Maitland, like Roberta Pedon of another genre, had a short stay in the limelight; with their early passing, they share a unique, cult-like icon status.
