No relation to the famed "exploitationer" of 1933, the Italian What Price Innocence? is a slick soap opera with a suitably tension-filled climax. Lyda Barova plays Adriana, a peasant girl seduced and abandoned by landowner Giovanni (Ignazzio Balasamo). After his marriage, Giovanni decides he'd like to keep Adriana as his mistress; with a 5-year-old daughter to support, the girl has no choice. Enter war-veteran Stefano Rella (Otello Toso), whose wife has deserted him and whose daughter has died. Finding a kindred spirit in Stefano, Adriana renounces her relationship with Giovanni, leading to any number of Byzantine plot twists.
