Noir, "woman in distress" category. The answer to the question "what happened to the woman in distress noir in the 1950s?" is answered by the cross-pollination of noir readymades into science fiction plots. It all fits in with the coarsening of noir elements that proceeds in the 50s as Hollywood looks for a way to express its terror and dismay not just about the Cold War and nuclear angst, but the repressive ethos dominating America during that decade.
