Goofs

Clostridium botulinum can't survive as a bacteria in the open air or in a common test tube as shown in this film. It is an anaerobic organism, meaning that lives and thrives in airless environments. Botulism poisoning can come from improperly canned foods, or from the spores getting into an open wound. Clostridium botulinum spores could be used, but a tube of living bacteria as shown in this film would not survive. See more »

Danger cuts both ways...
5 August 2010 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

Zachary Scott plays a womanizing writer who, as the film is opening, is removing a wedding ring from the finger of a woman who is lying in a bed in a hotel room. That she doesn't wake up tells you something. The story is fairly involved with minimal intrusion by law enforcement. It plays itself out between Scott and the woman he thinks will be his next push-over, an LA stenographer played by Faye Emmerson. While the audience is expecting the worst from Scott, it's Emmerson whose character eventually goes beyond what one would expect of it. Scott's traipsing around LA and looking for a room to rent is fairly riveting and when he sees Emmerson trying to take down the "Room For Rent" sign from her nice middle class two story wood house, the story is set. Suave ruthless womanizer meets lonely stenographer who lives with her mother and easily (maybe too easily) wins them both over. And later comes the arrival of the younger and prettier sister (Mona Freeman), which pretty much sets the stage and opens a lot of possibilities. Scott himself is at his ruthless best.
