Storyline

Kelly, a prostitute, finds redemption in the town of Grantville, where she arrives working as a medium-time seller. There, she meets Griff, the police captain of the town, with whom she spends a romantic afternoon. The woman, traumatized by an experience in the past called "The Naked Kiss" by psychiatrists, finally, finds a job as a nurser in a Hospital for handicapped children, experience that allows her to find a sensitive side in caring and patiently love each one of her little patients. Apparently, Kelly will find happiness in Grant, her fiancé and Griff's partner, but she will be the witness of a shocking event that will threaten this happiness and even her mental health.

Goofs

When Kelly approaches the porch of the house with the room for rent, she picks up the newspaper and hands it to the landlady who has opened the door. The newspaper, as picked up by Kelly, is snugly rolled up and bound with a rubber band. But in the next frame, taken from inside as we see landlady and Kelly come through the door, the newspaper in the landlady's hand is not a rolled up paper, but one that is simply folded in half.

Ahead of its time.
5 October 1999 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I just had to comment on this movie to give another view to the only other review that's here for this movie at the time. This movie was made in 1964 and thus should be judged according to its time. I thought the movie was excellent in the fact that it took alot of chances for 1964. It dealt with prostitution and child molestation in a very real way. The cinematography was very good for a picture of its time. The lighting on some of the scenes was absolutely erie and sometimes very emotional. I think in todays world of movie making the art of lighting has been lost or at least severely under developed. This movie is well worth seeing if you can find it.
