Close, But No Cigar
1 December 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was one of the first films to deal with the once taboo subject of rape. In fact, it beat the acclaimed A Case of Rape, featuring Elizabeth Montgomery, by a few months. However, while the latter film is remembered by audiences and critics alike, this one is very much forgotten. As another commentator said, it starts off fine by showing what a woman goes through during and after a rape, but the thing that killed this film was that it seemingly forgot about the victim and concentrated on the man that was wrongly accused of the crime. No wonder more people remember the Elizabeth Montgomery film. That film will always be remembered for helping to take away the stigma of such a horrific crime, while this film will only be remembered as just another 1970's movie of the week.
