In the scene where Legget is Trap Shooting with his wife Emily, he changes from a single shot, breech shotgun to a Remmington Semi Auto 1100, that is not a breech break shotgun as it was in the initial shot in the scene. See more »
Command performances leave me quite cold. I've had more fun in the back seat of a '39 Ford than I could ever have in the vault of the Chase Manhattan Bank.

Call girl Elizabeth Taylor (playing Gloria Wandrous-!!) pines for love in this glossy, empty claptrap from John O'Hara's flimsy novel. Lots of bitchy banter, a neon-lit love clinch, but no real characters and not much interest beyond the rather tacky glamor. The movie does begin well, with an elongated opening set-up featuring Liz leaving a married man's apartment, taking a mink and scrawling a missive on the mirror. But the film is so poky and lethargic, and Taylor looks so sleepy, that one waits in vain for the director to shake off the cobwebs. Even sleepier is Eddie Fisher, in a confusingly written role as Liz's...what? guy-pal? For those who stick with it, the ending has to be seen to be believed. Taylor surely didn't buy it, not even when she won the Best Actress Oscar (everyone knew it was because she had been so sick). *1/2 from ****
