Something Wild (1961, not the 1986 Melanie Griffith romp): rape-traumatized Carol Baker attempts suicide but is rescued and then confined by Ralph Meeker, a decent but lonely man playing the Blacksnake Moan gambit
Town Without Pity a German woman is raped (no doubt about it) by 3 GI’s. We’re supposed to root for them because the Army wants to come down on them like a ton of bricks to appease the local Germans (who, after all started WWII), but are saved by lawyer Kirk “not quite Paths of Glory; more like the creep who raped teenage Natalie Wood” Douglas.
Cry Rape, a 1973 TV movie with Andrea Marcovicci, who’s had a respected career more as a singer than as an actress, despite some good movies. Those of us who saw this back in the day were not only outraged at the rape, but at the slam at cat vs dog owners.
