Goofs

When Bill gets stuck in the slush trying to turn his car around to follow Stephen Morley and Helen Ferguson whom he has passed on the road, the rear wheels spin without traction. The front tires can be seen to have chains installed. If they had been installed on the rear drive tires, he wouldn't have had a problem and the scene wouldn't have had as much tension. See more »

Quotes

Bill Harkness: [returns to car after dumping a dead body onto a moving train] He stayed on, caught on the catwalk or whatever it is, but his hat and... came off.
Helen Ferguson: Don't.

Lifetime TV Meets Film Noir...
18 December 2010 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

...and I say that with the highest form of flattery. This nail-biter is tightly directed, moves along at a nice swift pace and never drags for even a moment. Barbara Stanwyck gives one of the finest performances I have seen by her and the rest of the cast is all around excellent as well. After Helen Ferguson is left pregnant and penniless by her jerkoff of a boyfriend (the dreamy and steamy Lyle Bettger), a series of events leaves her mistaken for the widow of a rich man. The family takes her in and the brother of her alleged widow (played by handsome John Lund) falls in love with her and everything is hunky-dory - that is, until the jerkoff ex-boyfriend comes back and starts all kinds of trouble. The cherry on top of the whipped cream here is a lovely and sympathetic performance by Jane Cowl as the mother-in-law. A classic soapy film noir!
