Trivia

Filming began in 1946, but the production was plagued with problems. At least five directors worked on it, some leaving when they were either fired or quit because of producer Howard Hughes' constant interference, others being hired only to shoot retakes or small bits of new footage. The film was finally released in 1950 after costs had ballooned to more than $4 million - a staggering sum at the time for a picture that wasn't an epic and had no big stars - and was a major critical and box-office disaster.

Faith Domergue was the hottest of the Howard Hughes "discoveries"
9 March 1999 | by (San francisco) – See all my reviews

She was a big chest breather, and had a sultry expression.

She had her best shot, I thought, in WHERE DANGER LIVES, with Mitchum.

George Dolenz had a good part in this; possibly his only. He was a solid character/contract player, and deserved better.

The classical musical themes and outsized, over-weighted backgrounds were effective, I thought. Really approaching the cerebral, almost, as far as on a scale of the Howard Hughes things.
