Goofs

In the scene where Connie Wallace first tells Flamarion of her love for him, the position of the gun in Flamarion's hand changes depending upon the shot. When it is a close-up of Flamarion, the gun barrel is high up, about the level of Flamarion's upper arm. In the wider shot, the gun barrel is in the crook of his elbow as his arms are folded.

Too bad that this movie is so unknown
22 May 2000 | by lsalgaSee all my reviews

This movie is not unforgettable, but enjoyable. I am very surprised to see that i am the only person to comment it. I saw it last summer when i had nothing to do during one afternoon with my sister, no great actors but a fine story that keep you stuck on the screen until the end. One thing to add: it was very rare during the golden age of hollywood to see a leading actor who was not as handsome as the others. So rent it if you find it, it's worth the viewing!

I hope that my English is correct, anyway you will forgive 'cause I am French.
