Trivia

Although it is never stated in the film, Karen Duncan is suffering from tuberculosis (TB). One of the earlier treatments for TB was to place the patient in a healthy environment with continuous fresh air (often in a mountain or desert location), and to ensure that he/ she had a good diet and plenty of rest. This resulted in the development of many sanatoria for TB patients (similar to the one run by Stanton) all over the world, . See more »

romantic melodrama
6 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Famed concert pianist Karen Duncan (Barbara Stanwyck) is recuperating in a Swiss sanatorium from a respiratory illness under the supervision of loving Dr. Tony Stanton (David Niven). She befriends fellow patient Celestine Miller (Joan Lorring). Playboy Paul Clermont (Richard Conte) crashes his race car barely avoiding Karen on the road. Her illness is more serious than she suspects. She is shocked by Celestine's unexpected death. Stanton tells her that she must rest but she ignores his advise and runs off to live her life with Clermont. It's a bit slow. With Stanwyck, it holds out a possibility of something more. I was hoping for a good twist or something different. In the end, it doesn't really give more than a straight downward slide into a romantic melodrama.
