| The anatomy of prostitution
This drama is set in Soho and is a shocking presentation of the prostitution problem, showing in detail how it works for an innocent girl suspecting nothing to get caught in a web of ruthless pimps. John Derek had just before played the role of Joshua in "The Ten Commandments" and then plunged into this swamp of ruthless criminality, showing his great versatility. The other actors are good as well, but the main thing of the film is the thorough almost documentarily meticulous analysis of how the prostitution business works - and shocking, for being so highly developed already in the mid fifties.
