Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

"I love you until my heart chokes my wind pipes..."
10 April 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is another film noir (abliet one on a $1.99 budget) where a few familiar faces go down territory already done in "Double Indemnity" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice". It all surrounds the old lover (William Eythe) of Barbara Britton's who returns to discover that she's about to wed aging Lloyd Corrigan, a really old pal of his. A bit of comedy is thrown in concerning Corrigan and the bride's papa (Walter Catlett), and the nagging by mama Minna Gombell. Britton pledges allegiance to Corrigan until the day of the wedding, and, well, you know... This has the feeling of a quick writing job of an early television anthology series episode with unbelievable characters and a situation as ridiculous as the wind pipe line which Corrigan actually tells his bride-to-be (or not to be). Is that the question?
