The Most Startling Story The Screen Has Ever Dared Reveal!
Did You Know?
One of the very first American films to imply that women derive pleasure from receiving oral sex. The woman in question was Jean Wallace
, who insisted that the scene be shot when her husband (and one of the film's co-producers) Cornel Wilde
wasn't on set that day. Wilde was not completely pleased with the scene, blaming director Joseph H. Lewis
for taking advantage of his wife. Nevertheless, the scene now lives on as an iconic example of the cinema breaking taboos. See more
In the scene where Susan is having a drink in her apartment, there are shadows of plant leaves on a door in the background. However when Mr Brown comes in via another door, these shadows have vanished in the ensuing shots. See more
Mr. Brown is a very reasonable man. You don't know him.
Oh, is he? Well I'm not. I intend to make life very difficult for your Mr. Brown.
You shouldn't talk like that, Lieutenant. You're overstepping your authority.
Joe, the man has reason to hate me. His salary is $96.50 a week. The busboys in my hotel make better money than that. Don't you see, Joe? He's a righteous man.
