This is first of two Joan Crawford vehicles in which she plays a woman who undergoes surgery to avoid blindness. In a segment of the 1969 made-for-TV movie pilot of the television series Night Gallery (1969), she played another visually-impaired character who has a risky eye operation. See more »

This movie is really a star vehicle for Joan Crawford. Here she plays a "gang leader". Her henchmen are typically stupid and violent. Oddly she falls in love with a very decent doctor and the way this plays out is well done.
One especially impressive scene has her visit a woman's prison (in the company of her Doctor friend). Really nice acting job as she portrays her fear of the place (she has been in prison before one guesses) while trying to appear unconcerned. I think this movie is quite a bit better than most people give it credit for.
