Trivia

According to director Curtis Harrington, the credited set decorator provided by the studio proved unusable so he was given a paid vacation during the production. Costume designer Morton Haack actually did the set decoration but, because this was against union rules, he was not credited for his work. See more »

Want to play a game?
22 December 2004 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

I agree with others that this is a hard one to find, luckily I recorded it once years ago, but every now and then I dig it out and watch it. It's just a fun movie to watch with a great performance by Simone S. who dominates every scene she is in. This movie has atmosphere and an air of intimacy about it. The story may not be totally original but the originality of the characters overcomes any shortness of the script. Kooky Estelle Winwood is great as the "cat lady" who lives next door, who's always concerned about her savings coupons. The "Mod" decor of the 60's only enhances the funkiness to this movie. Scan the movie section and if you see it's going to be on by all means tune in and get turned on!
