Trivia

When summing up the film in the New York Times, Howard Thompson, the film critic known for his one line reviews, simply stated: "This picture is trash." See more »

Goofs

The trailer that the gangsters lived in is a 1952 Kenskill, 30 foot model. This model had a furnace between the door and built-in frig. The furnace is missing in the movie. Also the lower cabs in the kitchen are missing. Only the upper cabs are there. There is no range and no kitchen sink. Instead there is an easy chair under the small kitchen window where the kitchen sink (lower cabs) would have been. See more »

This Woman is stuck in a B movie
24 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strictly B stuff which Crawford considered her worst movie, conveniently forgetting the atrocious "Ice Follies of 1939". Her part is something she could play in her sleep, a tough dame who finds herself in a tight spot.

The thing is that even though Joan is elegantly gowned her surroundings are unquestionably cheap-jack something she sensed did not bode well for her future at Warners, she negotiated her exit and this was her last film for them. It's not just that the sets are low rent, the script is far below the high standard she was being offered just a year before.

That's not to say it's not entertaining in a sensationalistic way but certainly nowhere near her best films.
