In the film, Rose gets a $12.50 refund for a bus ticket from Niagara Falls, Ontario to Chicago, Illinois. In 2019, that is equivalent, due to inflation, to around $120. Actually, in 2019, you can purchase a one-way bus ticket for the same trip for around $55. See more »
In the first few minutes Rose (Marilyn Monroe) is in bed and the ashtray and cup on the bedside table are beside each other. When the camera angle changes to the opposite side of the bed, the cup is well away from the table edge and no longer in line with the ashtray. See more »
[Upon seeing Rose Loomis in a low-cut, tight-fitting red dress]
Hey, get out the firehose!
Why don't you ever get a dress like that?
Listen. For a dress like that, you've got to start laying plans when you're about thirteen.

Joseph Cotten was an outstanding actor whose talents have been terribly under-appreciated. He is great in this movie as an abusive husband. The very sexy Marilyn Monroe is his wife, who is having an affair with another man. They meet a pair of young newlyweds on their honeymoon. Max Showalter as the young husband is one of the most annoying characters I've ever seen. Jean Peters as his bride does the unthinkable, managing to look almost as beautiful as Marilyn herself.
This is a suspenseful and entertaining movie, which makes great use of the scenery surrounding Niagara Falls.
