This film's initial telecast in Los Angeles took place Thursday 19 September 1957 on KTTV (Channel 11), followed by Philadelphia Thursday 31 October 1957 on WFIL (Channel 6), and by San Francisco 17 March 1958 on KGO (Channel 7); there is no reliable documentation that it was ever aired in New York City at this time, possibly because of sponsors resistance to the many pre-code aspects of its story.

Det. Ed Fitzpatrick:

The blond bomb shell, Jean Harlow,(Daisy Stevens),"Reckless",'35 gave an outstanding performance and some of her outfits showed off all the wonderful things males love in a woman during the 1930's and still DO ! Walter Houston,(Capt. Jim Fitzpatrick),"The Great Sinner",'49, played a rough and tough Irish Captain who did not mess around with the mob and especially Jean Hersholt, who really did not fit very well in this role. Jean Hersholt played very few roles as the bad guy during the 1920's and 30's and was a good actor in the radio days. J. Carrol Naish,(Pietro Cholo),"The Beast With Five Fingers",'46, was very young and gave a great supporting role on his way to a fantastic career on the Silver Screen. The ending of this film is great and I thought it was very well directed and produced.
