While shooting Clint Eastwood's only scene, Rock Hudson noticed that Eastwood was wearing prop glasses. Hudson protested that because he was playing a physician, he should be wearing glasses, so the director gave Eastwood's glasses to Hudson. It is the only scene in the film where Hudson wears glasses.

Realizing too late how you can hurt the one you love
This isn't high drama but appeals more to one's tender side and family life values. The doctor Michael (Rock Hudson) finds romance with Lisa, an entertainer (Cornell Borchers) while in Europe; they wed and in time a daughter becomes a part of their life too. But his streak of jealousy gets the upper hand when he thinks she is secretly meeting another man. It causes havoc and estrangement for them in the years ahead and much needs to be set aright again, especially for the little girl who in all this time of separation is deprived of a mother.
George Sanders as Victor, has a typical role of being the outsider, almost the observer. Here he's an artist, a devoted confidante of Lisa, and cares for her well-being as years pass.
For fans of Rock Hudson this is a fine movie from his heyday of being a top Hollywood heart throb.
