For a 50's flick rather progressive
22 June 2013 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Efficient little programmer that tackles some controversial subject matter for the 50s, attempted suicide, child abuse and rape. What may be even more surprising is that the dialogue contains both the words rape and pregnant something that the production code usually disallowed. This was probably due to the fact that this came from a poverty row studio and strictures weren't so tight. The low budget is evident in that the hospital only seems to have three rooms and two doctors! However again for the time period the hospital staff is rather diverse with both an Asian and an African-American nurse. No great shakes but an interesting artifact.
