In 1964 the U.S. was in the process of coming out of its shell, after its heavily conservative 1950s, so by American standards the subjects handled by this movie - prostitution and child molestation - were daring (notice the poster selling this as a "shock and shame story"). Unfortunately they aren't handled daringly, and in fact it's a very cheesy, moralistic and forgettable little melodrama that doesn't deserve the pedestal it's been put on.

Melodramatic to a fault with flashes of interesting ideas that help elevate the material. There are genuinely shocking parts that are effective. It's well done because we should expect the worst but the way the story is framed, it feels like when things are going well for Kelly it seems like it will last. At the very least it doesn't seem like the rails will be thrown how they are.

An oddball noir. It throttles forward with one of the most exciting opening scenes in cinema and it's kept afloat by weird touches like a haunting musical sequence, striking cinematography and an excellent performance from Constance Towers.

Starts out very promising yet no scene matches the initial one and its very slow and quite boring throughout. Dialogue is weak and the plot is thin. Didn't really care what happened to Kelly either, just bad writing all around. Forgettable.

A really bizarre film, it starts brilliantly and has some crazy moments but then soon seems to fall into 50's melodrama... then suddenly takes a left turn that I certainly didn't see coming. Towers is great playing a woman trying to escape noir but finding it in suburbia. Score is not a grade.

Subtlety wasn't Fuller's long suit. Violence starts the picture, with the lead attacking the camera itself. When a criminal decides to go straight, she doesn't just stop committing crimes, she goes all out. And when the bottom gets kicked out of her new life, it isn't just unpleasant, it's downright nasty. You might not like the resulting picture, but Fuller would probably have been annoyed to have made something everyone liked.
