Trivia

Before filming began, Orson Welles warned director Richard Fleischer that he would be far more difficult to direct in this film than he had been a year previously, when he appeared in Fleischer's "Compulsion". Although Welles had two roles in this film, he found neither one interesting, disliked his leading lady Juliette Greco and was all too aware of the inadequacies of the screenplay (written under a pseudonym by his old friend Darryl Zanuck, the producer). By his own account, Welles cut a number of his own speeches and generally made his role smaller, so that he would not become too bored. Director Fleischer later claimed that he had been quite willing, however, to do his own stunts in the film, as that would be a way of alleviating boredom. See more »

Another tragic love triangle should be run of the mill but the superb acting of Greco makes this one stand out.
24 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

The pale beauty of Juliette Greco had always intrigued me. This movie of ill-starred love, lust and violence with gripping courtroom scenes (complete with re-enactment of the crime at the site)etched itself uncomfortably into my memory. That Greco often stars as a tragic anti-heroine may have something to do with her origins in the Languedoc region of France of unhappy history (cf. the Albigensian persecutions). The handsome young Bradford Dillman is a great foil to Greco's acting talents. Another under-appreciated actor, he reveals his great depth in other films such as Circle of Deception, where he portrays a betrayed secret agent used as a pawn by his superiors and Compulsion, where he plays a megalomaniacal intellectual out to prove the validity Nietzche's idea of a "superman" who is privileged to cull the human race of "unworthies" (based on the play "The Rope" of which Hitchcock made an earlier execrable film version).
