When she's getting ready to leave the party at Larry's house, Maggie goes to their bedroom to pick up her coat (all of the partygoers' coats had been laid out there on the bed). There is at least another coat or jacket by the pillow area of the bed when she comes in, but a moment later after she has looked around the bedroom and peeked into their bathroom, when Maggie walks by the bed to leave, the other coat or jacket by the pillow is missing. It is "possible" another guest "could have" have reached in and grabbed it, but it is highly unlikely since Maggie was only in the bedroom for a moment and she was never surprised by anyone coming in and catching her kind of snooping around.

I was surfing the net and saw this movie on Ebay, decided to buy it since I could not find it in the video store. I was surprise this is a good movie, Kim Novak was fabulous, look fabulous in this movie. The love relationship between her character and the Kirk Douglas's character was flawless, stupid but yet flawless. I can't understand why a man would like his beautiful and loving wife play by Barbara Rush to have an affair with another woman, when that woman told him up front that she doesn't want to leave her husband, even though he was willing to leave his wife for her. It was obvious from the beginning, all she want was some attention that her busy husband failed to give her. You know that in the end, they will just end up hurting each other and their individual families. Any woman who would leave her husband just for sex, would do it again when the new husband becomes busy or the thrill of sneaking around becomes dull. At the end of the movie, the last scene suggest she would do it again. This is an excellent movie from two still living legend.
