While energetically explaining the local layout to Ray and Polly Cutler, Mr. Kettering describes Chippawa, Ontario, as the scene of a major American defeat in the Revolutionary War. But U.S. forces in the Revolutionary War got no closer than 75 miles from the area. In fact, Chippawa was the scene of a major American victory in the War of 1812. See more »
Joseph Cotten was an outstanding actor whose talents have been terribly under-appreciated. He is great in this movie as an abusive husband. The very sexy Marilyn Monroe is his wife, who is having an affair with another man. They meet a pair of young newlyweds on their honeymoon. Max Showalter as the young husband is one of the most annoying characters I've ever seen. Jean Peters as his bride does the unthinkable, managing to look almost as beautiful as Marilyn herself.
This is a suspenseful and entertaining movie, which makes great use of the scenery surrounding Niagara Falls.
