Goofs

The footstool's position varies between scenes. When Perry falls over the footstool the first time, he places it so that it is near the foot of April's bed. However, when April falls over it, it has moved to the middle of the floor some distance away from the beds towards the bathroom. After falling over it a second time, Perry moves it away from the beds and away from the direction of the bathroom. However, when he is carrying April out of the bathroom, the footstool is now back in the middle of the floor between the beds and the bathroom. See more »

ok but needs a Cary Grant
19 August 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I did try to like this - and Lilli Palmer is excellent as the bored wife of gifted doctor Dana Andrews, doomed to a life of cooking lobsters and making do. The part of the doctor though seems to be beyond Andrews and needs a Cary Grant or a William Powell to give it some zip. And Louis Jourdan wouldn't float my boat, far too scheming and false, yuk. Watch out for little Beau Bridges in one of his early film roles. It's fun but with the right cast and a lighter touch than director Lewis Milestone had it could have been more than a minor curio.
