This is first of two Joan Crawford vehicles in which she plays a woman who undergoes surgery to avoid blindness. In a segment of the 1969 made-for-TV movie pilot of the television series Night Gallery (1969), she played another visually-impaired character who has a risky eye operation. See more »
When Jackson (David Brian) murders the motorcycle cop, he disposes of the motorcycle by pushing it off the highway and into a gully. But instead of dumping the cop's body into the gully along with the motorcycle, and leaving no link to him or his gang, he orders his partner to load the body into their travel trailer and they abandon the trailer, which is immediately traced directly to Jackson through its registration. Even an amateur crook wouldn't make such an obvious, pointless blunder. See more »
I can answer all your questions, now.
Dr. Ben Halleck:
You already have. There was only one answer to every question. Yes, I know why you came back, why you didn't stop to count the cost.
But I did count it, I want to pay it.
Dr. Ben Halleck:
Then remember this, Beth. Remember the day when we took a detour and it led us home? It always will.
I'll remember. And the prison woman who held your hand with all of her strength because she needed your strength.

Strictly B stuff which Crawford considered her worst movie, conveniently forgetting the atrocious "Ice Follies of 1939". Her part is something she could play in her sleep, a tough dame who finds herself in a tight spot.
The thing is that even though Joan is elegantly gowned her surroundings are unquestionably cheap-jack something she sensed did not bode well for her future at Warners, she negotiated her exit and this was her last film for them. It's not just that the sets are low rent, the script is far below the high standard she was being offered just a year before.
That's not to say it's not entertaining in a sensationalistic way but certainly nowhere near her best films.
