The Naked Kiss

Basis for the late film noir by Samuel Fuller, released in 1964, starring Constance Towers as a former call girl trying to make good in a new town. Intriguingly, the book makes specific mention of a key meta-moment in the film, where Towers walks past a movie marquee advertising "Shock Corridor," the now-classic film that Fuller directed the year before.

The Dark Page II: 1959-1965, p. 70.
