Description by Image Entertainment:
This multiple award-winning drama (1960, 66 min.) takes the form of a documentary to tell the story of Judith, a newly divorced woman who moves to Los Angeles to get a fresh start. In this journey through the dark side of 1950's urban life, the camera acts as a character that follows Judith through the streets as she encounters the strange denizens of the city, ranging from trend setters to religious fanatics. All the tawdry and desperate faces of this world become a mirror for Judith's personal failures and struggles to claim her new life. Included as an added bonus, "The Savage Eye" director Joseph Strick's "Interviews with My Lai Veterans" (1970, 21 min.), an Academy Award-winning documentary which makes an unflinching exploration of the 1968 massacre of the Vietnamese village of My Lai by U.S. armed forces.
