When Felix is advising Larry about the dangers of cheating on his wife, he warns him to watch out not to leave blonde hair pins laying around because Larry's wife Eve has black hair. In reality, actress Barbara Rush sported reddish auburn hair. See more »
Kim Novak and Kirk Douglas positively steam up the screen in this well-done film depicting a torrid suburban affair in Eisenhower's sexually repressed America. It is a great story and is singlehandedly responsible for my being a huge Kim Novak fan. Not only was (is) she undeniably beautiful, she is a remarkable actress. Look for Walter Matthau in a villainous turn, and the great Ernie Kovacs in one of his final performances.
