In her autobiography, Doris Day wrote that to prepare herself for one of the terror scenes, she recalled a time when her first husband, trombonist Al Jorden, dragged her out of bed when she was ill and pregnant and hurled her against a wall. Day related that in the scene she wasn't acting hysterical, she WAS hysterical, and at the end of the take she collapsed in a real faint. She was carried to her dressing room, and producer Ross Hunter shut down production for a few days while she recovered. See more »

I was once in Dublin for the horse show, and I got a call at the Sheldon Room from a man who wanted to dress me in black underwear. Personally, mind you! It was the most *stimulating* minute-and-a-half I spent in Ireland!

I caught this on Channel Five last week, and I expected another plodding Doris Day film. However, I was pleasantly surprised! This little gem isn't actually that bad. I give you that Doris Day does overplay her role horrendously in some parts, and that you can guess the twist ending when you're only half - way through, but all in all, this quite a good movie thriller!
It's about a woman who starts getting mysterious death threats from some unknown person, and as the film goes on, we see her mental health deteriorate into the twist in the climax.
The scariest scene is in the London fog in the very first scene, and the rest of it builds up suspense. A little over acted, and perfectly see - through, but a good thriller all the same! Rent it for a night in! I recommend it!
