The true story of a seventeen year old girl, an MGM studio extra in 1937. Tricked into going to a remote part of the studio lot for what she thought was a casting call for a movie. She and over a hundred other extras like her were trapped in nightmare. This documentary is powerful, moving and sad. It provides a glimpse of the power and control that the MGM studio had in those days. This story is so applicable to todays spotlight on sexual harassment of women. Highly recommend it if only to pay respects to this girls memory.
