When he shows signs of pulling away, Diane schemes to get him in so deep he'll never get out. Written by

Prior to a 6/21/11 airing on TCM, Robert Osborne
revealed that this was the final film of Jean Simmons
under her contract with Howard Hughes
--he'd bought it without her knowledge from J. Arthur Rank Studios in England. Her displeasure led her to cut her hair off, knowing that Hughes preferred long-haired leading ladies and thinking it might prevent him from utilizing her before the contract's end date.

a bonus if he finished shooting before Simmons' contract expires, which he collected. See more
