Trivia

In common with two other European-made Universal films of the same period ("Secret Ceremony" and "The Night Of The Following Day"), this movie was subjected to a great deal of alteration when it came to be shown on American television a year or two after its cinema release. Not only were scenes trimmed or cut, but several new scenes were added to change the plot and make it less sensational. None of the original cast-members were in the new scenes, which were filmed in Hollywood by a new director and crew. Peter Hall savagely attacked Universal for this practice, which caused a storm of controversy, and this new version of the film was widely ridiculed; there were similar responses when the other two films were aired in their new versions, and thereafter Universal seemed to have stopped making such alterations.

OK drama
2 February 2001 | by (Seminole, FL) – See all my reviews

This drama is OK, nothing more, but it features a rather depressing storyline. Married man meets, beds, and impregnates a drifter, and we see the impact on his marriage.

Added note: Try to rent the video. When NBC showed the movie on commercial television, the network added additional scenes featuring a social worker looking for the drifter, and the man's co-workers. These scenes are not outtakes from the original movie that NBC restored, but new scenes that NBC filmed and added to make clearer the backgrounds of the characters. They are unnecessary and rather insulting to the audience that the network felt they needed to "improve" the movie.
