Trivia:
During filming, an electrician fell from the catwalk high above the set, narrowly missing the film's star, Joan Crawford. Shooting was temporarily halted while the man was rushed to hospital. Crawford refused to resume production until she was assured that the man would be fully cared for, that he would remain on salary, and that his family would be provided for. Crawford also called the hospital each day afterwards for reports on his condition.See more »

maybe a flop then... but its my favorite movie of all time, 25 June 2005
Author: original_sinner1978 from United States

actually this is the movie that made me fall in love with Joan Crawford and Franchot tone.this movie is kinda like a Cinderella story except it has a twist in the end. Or actually like another pretty woman only to me better.Franchot tone plays as the handsome postman and Joan Crawford plays as the beautiful hooker/prostitute.I'm not saying anything else to spoil it. i watch it every night before i go to bed.and think about it everyday.I'm hoping that it will soon be on DVD.nobody can ever say they are a true Joan Crawford fan and say they hate this movie.Joan Crawford shows her true ability as Anni.this movie is a true love story!
