| The story of a sad, and rather stupid, young lady.
When this movie debuted, it must have caused a few eyebrows to raise. After all, early on in the movie a high school girl is kidnapped and raped by her classmates. While it IS handled very tastefully and discretely, this was hot stuff for the time. Sadly, after she is found on the side of the road by the police, her foster parents refuse to allow her home...as if SHE was somehow at fault. So, she's sent to live at a girls school. The film then cuts to her release. Dixie (Lisa Gaye) is vulnerable and some sleazebags realize it and take advantage of her. Eventually, you see he becoming a stripper and even ends up marrying a guy who's an armed robber and kidnapper!! By the end of the film, she's at the end of her ropes. Such a sad end for a nice girl who just didn't get any breaks.

Probably the most interesting aspect of this film to some will be seeing William Campbell (of "Star Trek" fame) playing a sleazy boyfriend of Dixie in the picture. He's very charming and sweet...and a rat down deep! Other than this, the film isn't bad...but it's not at all good, either. Sort of a super-cheap rags to riches to rags morality tale.
