Trivia

During pre-production, freelancer Loretta Young had director approval, and very reluctantly was talked into accepting Jules Dassin. Ten days into shooting she refused to work with him any further, telling the producer to either replace her or the director. Overnight Dassin was dropped and she approved Richard Sale, who completed the film. See more »

Is this on VHS or will this film ever be shown on cable tv?

I really like Loretta Young films. I think she was a great actress in her time. I would like to see more of her films such as Paula, Half Angel, etc. I really hope that some of her rarely seemed films such as Paula and Half Angel...is available on video tapes.
