This French romantic melodrama moved a bit too slowly for American audiences, but its original Gallic fans were more than satisfied. Maria Casares stars as Therese, who after being deserted by her lover decides to get her revenge on the world by denying her younger sister Nicole (Claude Larue) any form of male companionship. Finally rebelling against her sister's domination, Nicole takes violent action. By rights, she should be punished to the full extent of the law, but her friends and neighbors, who've been on Nicole's side from the beginning, won't let that happen. Pierre Brasseur heads the cast as a philosophical beachcomber named "Twelve Apostles." Love Locked Out was filmed on location in a French coastal town, adding a bit of verisimilitude to the contrivances of the script.
