Storyline

A young girl is raped while coming home from work. The trauma of the attack turns her away from her parents and her fiancé, and, unable to face society, she runs away and, using an assumed name, takes a job on an orange ranch. A young clergyman takes an interest in her, although she won't confide in him. When a ranch hand tries to kiss her, she relives her terrifying experience and nearly kills him. She is arrested but when her identity is established and the facts of her case are brought forth, the clergyman convinces the court that it is society that should shoulder the blame. He helps rebuild her faith and send her back to her parents and fiancé. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Engrossing quickie designed for the marquee's second bill...
26 June 2007 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

R.K.O. second-feature about a small town working girl, living with her folks and about to be married, who is the victim of a "criminal assault" (i.e., rape). After reporting her attack to the police, the girl and her parents attract stares and whispers from the curious locals. In a benumbed fog, the girl boards a bus for Los Angeles, getting off in a rural town and meeting a well-meaning pastor. Interesting film, co-written and directed by Hollywood pioneer Ida Lupino, has a tight pace but it isn't well cast. Newcomer Mala Powers spends most of her time staring wide-eyed into faces, running and looking back, running and looking back, while all the men are lookalike-bland, and seem awkward with their ineffectual characters. Not-bad programmer has amusing parallels to Carroll Baker's 1961 film "Something Wild", but there isn't much outrage in this scrubbed scenario--just a stunned quiet. **1/2 from ****
