Trivia

While filming a scene in a subway tunnel, Inger Stevens and Rod Steiger were nearly asphyxiated by carbon monoxide fumes. Steiger said years later that when they were being given oxygen, Stevens tried to refuse it. She said at the time she wanted to die; Steiger and the crew had to convince her otherwise. Years later on April 30, 1970, when Ms. Stevens was only 35 years old, she died of an overdose. See more »

Goofs

The Imperial driven by Paul Hoplin changes from an old-style two-headlight model to the newer four-headlight version. Early in the movie, when Hoplin is in the phone booth, you can see the two-headlight car in the background. Later, when he is driving Joan Molner to Vince's apartment, it is the newer style four-headlight model. In 1957 the four-headlight system was optional, because it was not yet legal in all states. It became standard with the 1958 models. See more »

A Great Cast of Superstars!
16 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film classic of 1958 depicts all the superstars of the silver screen very young, Angie Dickinson (Eileen Kelly)"Dressed to Kill"'80 is very hard to recognize, however, her sexual charm is always present in this film. Ingar Stevens(Mrs.John Molner)"The Farmers Daughter"'63 TV Series, was very young and beautiful as James Mason's(John Molner)"Lolita"'62 wife, Ingar Stevens was an unappreciated actress and unfortunately took her own life in 1970 at the very height of her career. Rod Steiger(Paul Hoplin)"No Way to Treat A Lady"'68 played the role of a mastermind with a fool proof way of making a half a million dollars by kidnapping Mr. & Mrs. Molner and their daughter. The black & white photography of NYC made this picture a real classic film for many future generations to enjoy and the wonderful talent of these great SUPERSTARS! Be sure to view it the next time it is on TV.
