The movie was made and released about twenty-three years after the first version of the film's source novel, No Orchids for Miss Blandish
(1948), which had been filmed under the book's actual title, had been made and released in 1948. That picture was the first ever filmed adaptation of a written work by author James Hadley Chase
. Neither film version used Chase's original ending. See more
