Near the end of the film, Cliff bumps the toy robot on the table, starting it walking towards the camera and he walks back to the shop window. The camera starts tracking forward and as the toy robot is walking forwards out of the shot, bottom left, the shadow of the camera falls across the toy robot. See more »

"At my age a birthday is only a time to turn all mirrors to the wall."
Fourth and final pairing of Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray. It's a midlife crisis soaper from director Douglas Sirk about a man (MacMurray) who feels neglected by his wife (Joan Bennett) and kids. When he meets old flame Stanwyck, sparks fly. When his kids find out, it naturally causes problems. Well-directed with some nice photography from Russell Metty. The visuals help make a routine story a little more interesting. But still, it's just that: routine. This is not the kind of movie that I would watch more than once. The performances are all fine but I just found it rather dull. Still, Stanwyck and MacMurray fans will want to check it out.
