Goofs

When Josephine enters Jessie's room when she's crying over reading the paper about the previous night's events, the interior door inexplicably has a deadbolt lock on it - but no corresponding plate or bolt are seen on the door's edge. This is a common shortcut of set carpenters. The same can be observed with Isabel's apartment door. See more »

Compelling. Wonderful acting. Surprising.
18 June 2010 | by (Beverly Hills, California) – See all my reviews

Compelling. This film took me by surprise - I couldn't resist it. Stanwyck is always 100% watchable and moving and she's smart and Van Heflin is a man's man and a very subtly intense actor. Ava Gardner was outstanding and Cyd Charisse is excellent. Mason is not my cup of tea but he pulled it off. These are actors who move with fluid grace and attack their lines and we just don't have American actors like this at present. I watched it a second time because it was seamless and sexy in a very subtle way. The clothes are gorgeous too. All of the intimacy between Heflin and Stanwyck and the easy way he had of just declaring himself was exciting. I was too young to appreciate this actor before, but I'm old enough now to want men to be men in films again.
