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.

Undistinctive but enjoyable tearjerker: American doctor loves/loses/finds Vienna nightclub entertainer. The skillful screenplay mixes motherhood, medicine and the Iron Curtain, plus manages a few provocative digs at American male behavior. Rock Hudson and George Sanders give appealing performances. In the central role, German actress Cornell Borchers looks like Ingrid Bergman but lacks her warmth. A rich supporting cast includes a bit by Clint Eastwood . Old-fashioned, but done with some dignity.
