Gary Merrill plays a failed playwright in a dreary marriage, trying to recall a drunken evening. And if you ask me next week what this movie is about, I'd probably have a hard time recalling it. There's little reason to care about what's going on, and not much to care about anyway. At least there is something of a payoff in the end, but it's a matter of too little, too late. You could make a case that the film explores bitter regrets and existential ennui, but it's too superficial to get excited about. Bland performances (Linda Darnell stands out but only because of her beauty), bland imagery, bland drama. A good remedy for your own nights without sleep.
