Trivia

Robert Mitchum was originally cast in the lead, but shortly after filming began he and director Otto Preminger had a major blowup and Mitchum either quit (according to Mitchum) or was fired, drinking being a factor (according to Preminger). Peter O'Toole, a former drinker, was hired to replace him in about a couple of days. Reportedly. Mitchum likened this to being like "replacing Ray Charles with Helen Keller." See more »

Boring and meandering!
22 June 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The film was so convoluted I found myself sitting trancelike in disbelief. I kept watching it to see if it would get any better....But it didn't. It looked like Peter O'toole (whom I love) sleepwalked through this one. Boring and meandering!
