The soap opera plotting has been polished to considerable extent, the playing by the femme cast members is topnotch and the direction aids them, but it is still a true confession type of yarn concerned with a big city romance between a married man and a beautiful model.

The soap opera plotting has been polished to considerable extent, the playing by the femme cast members is topnotch and the direction aids them, but it is still a true confession type of yarn concerned with a big city romance between a married man and a beautiful model.

Script is spotted with feeling and character, and also a lot of conversation that doesn’t mean much.

A decided asset is Lana Turner’s performance. In appearance, she is believable as the model. Since the entire story is pointed to the distaff side, Ray Milland’s role suffers as the man, married to a crippled wife, who goes off the deep end for the model.
