The rest of the film deals with how she survives this and her reactions which include possibly throwing herself off a bridge and into the river... something she is about to do, when someone grabs her and saves her. A garage mechanic happening by on a break. Ralph Meeker (I love him in this!!!) plays this role oddly sympathetically and you will have to see this amazing film for yourself to find out what happens between these two.
The score is by Aaron Copland and the titles are by the best title designer of that or any era, Saul Bass. The movie is filmed in New York and forever captures that lost world of seedy apartments, old Woolworths and the people that inhabited the city at that time. When I ordered this from Amazon I couldn't believe all the comments by people who'd remembered this movie the way I did! It shows you what an impact this powerful film had on us back then!
The old trailer, not the clearest thing ever, but worth seeing.
And this is an interview with director Jack Garfein:
Apparently Something Wild has been rediscovered and is now appreciated as the art film it is!
