The naked kiss
Drama, Noir, by Samuel Fuller, 1964, United States.
Kelly is a prostitute who arrives by bus in the small town of Grantville, after moving away from the big city to escape her former protector. She meets her local police captain Griff who hosts her in her apartment, but then invites her to leave town. Kelly, on the other hand, wants to abandon her previous life and become a nurse in a hospital for disabled children. Griff thinks she is opportunism, he doesn't trust her and keeps trying to send her out of town. Kelly falls in love with Grant, the rich scion of the most important family in the city, a friend of her friend, Griff. After an extraordinary courtship in which not even Kelly's tale of her dark past can discourage Grant, the two decide to get married. Kelly manages to convince Griff that she truly loves Grant and has given up prostitution permanently, and her friend agrees to be their best man.
Food for thought
Sometimes we choose to change our lives because our existence no longer satisfies, and we choose to pursue something we like or that makes our days easier. But after making the change we realize that new conflicts and different problems arise. Often the best change is not what you like best, but the choice of a new lifestyle supported by real values. An ethical change of life. There will be new problems, new difficulties, but the satisfaction will be immediate.
