Storyline

Grace Caldwell, a young Pennsylvania newspaper heiress living with her widowed mother, has trouble restraining herself when it comes to the amorous attentions of young men. As word starts to spread about her behavior, Grace becomes a major source of heartache for her mother and a big source of concern to her brother, Brock. One evening, at a Christmas party, Grace meets Sidney Tate, a gentleman farmer. They fall in love, and he asks her to marry him. Grace accepts, but only after making it clear that there are some things about her past she's not at all proud of. Sidney is taken aback by Grace's candid admission, but still wants to marry her. Grace promises to be faithful to Sidney; it's a promise she has every intention of keeping, until a former casual acquaintance, Roger Bannon, re-enters her life.

Quotes

Grace Caldwell: All right, you win. You get your dull little story off your big manly chest, but you make it fast, huh?
Roger Bannon: Right.
[pause]
Roger Bannon: From the first time I saw you -- and that was five years ago, when I worked for Lanigan and Doyle -- I haven't been able to stop looking. Not that I wanted to stop. Looking at you became one of the big pleasures of my life. Maybe the biggest. It got so I had you memorized. But I didn't realize that until I was overseas for a while. Then, all the other things began to get hazy. ...

About a Girl Nynphomaniac
8 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story starts off with a young girl named Grace Caldwell Tate, (Suzanne Pleshette) who is attacked and forcefully raped and does not report the matter but assumes this is a normal procedure between a girl and boy. Grace begins to have other encounters with men and causes all kinds of problems in her home and mostly her mother and brother. Jack Hollister, (Peter Graves) married Grace and they have a little boy and Grace continues to have an affair with Roger Bannon, (Ben Gazzara) and this film continues to go on with Grace never able to say a simple word like "NO", and leave "Me Alone". This is a mental sickness that can be corrected, but the person involved suffers horrible consequences. Great acting by Suzanne Pleshette and the entire cast. This is a very sad story and these type of people need help.
