Help ID'ing a film: b&w, NYC, suicide attempt, aired on TCM

4 posts in this topic

Hello.  I'm trying to identify a movie that I only saw the middle of on TCM at least 8 years ago.  It's set either in NYC or some other large city, but I definitely got the NYC vibe from it.  It follows a girl in her early 20's as she goes about her routine.  It's not about big-city life, it's more about loneliness.  There's very little dialogue, she lives in a tiny apartment with an old fashioned sky light that she uses a broom handle to open. The styling is very austere and stark.  She wears very plain dresses in the style of 1950's house dresses with no pattern on the fabric and her hair is just straight and down.  She ends up on a bridge, or on a wall, and is contemplating suicide.  A blue-collar man stops her and refuses to leave her alone because he's concerned that she'll try to jump again.  I guess they become friends.  I didn't see the end.  Can anybody help me id this movie, please?    

 

Thanks in advance to any viewers/posters out there!

Wow, that's it!  Thank you slaytonf!  I just read the synopsis, I was way off about how it ended.  I need to find it and watch all the way through this time  :)

You're welcome, kathryn.  TCM shows it rarely.  It's also on YouTube:
