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 »

Goofs

In the scene where Lisa Schindler has her back to the dresser and facing Caan and Ross, you can clearly see a man (wearing a checkered jacket) in the vanity mirror. See more »

A Fine Film, but not So Original
2 August 1999 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

This film is quite good, but it should be clear that it is very much derived from Les Diaboliques (1955). In fact, the makers tacitly admit as much exactly by casting Simone Signoret in this film. (Apparently, given her physical state in 1967, she could not play Nicole/Jennifer.) The alternative here to the swimming pool is very, very powerful, and one cannot help but think that Boileau (in Celle qui n'était plus) or Clouzot (in Les Diaboliques) would have thought long and hard about using it had it occurred to them.
