Outrage is a 1950 black-and-white B-movie starring Mala Powers. It was directed by Ida Lupino. Lupino also co-wrote the script, along with the producers Malvin Wald and her then-husband Collier Young.
Outrage was both controversial and remarkable for being only the second post-Production Code Hollywood film to deal with the issue of rape after Johnny Belinda (1948), which earned the actress who portrayed the victim, Jane Wyman, the Best Actress Academy Award. This was the first film starring role for Powers.
A rape victim, Ann Walton, moves to another town where she befriends Rev. Bruce Ferguson and attempts to begin a new life. When a man tries to kiss her, Ann attacks and nearly kills him. She is placed under arrest and is put on trial, where the minister explains what brought her to this point.
