Intended as a part of a multi-part film in the style of _Quartet (1949)_, it was shot at the KTTV Studio in Los Angeles at a cost of $41,000, had one set, used natural sounds instead of music, and was rather impressionistic in its cinematic style. See more »
The missing episode of Huntington Hartford's three ep. FACE TO FACE is largely footage of Harry Morgan doing a Saroyan monologue in a jail cell with expressionist-distorted bars.
It is notable only as the last film of the great James Whale. He was the major contributor to the Universal horror cycle with his FRANKENSTEIN Films.
The film is recognizably his, though adding nothing to his status.
Whether it was a good idea to chop it out of the released film is speculative but it is a pity not to have it back there on disc, so than Whale (Ian McKellan in GODS & MONSTERS) fans can make up their own minds.
