    Previous reviewer Sonia calls this movie "muito bom," which means "very good" in Portugese, but I would have to say "Muito Bomb." Talk about uninspired direction by Roy Rowland! Just endless scenes of phone conversations, dull interiors and generic studio backlots. When you finally do get something that's actually OUTDOORS and ON LOCATION, like the backyard pool scene or the finale at Union Station in downtown L.A. you feel like the Mormons gazing on the promised land after crossing the desert. And the screenplay by Richard Flournoy isn't much better. I mean the main character is a successful playwright, for cryin out loud. You'd think the script would provide this character with one witty riposte or insightful comment. Nope. As for Victor Mature, who is cast as the playwright, he's about as believable in that role as Randolph Scott would be as a Persian diplomat. Less, actually. Jean Simmons is never bad, although she comes perilously close as the long suffering playwright's wife. I shoulda listened to the usually reliable El Debbo and spared myself ninety min. of mediocrity. Give it a C minus. P.S. Dabs Greer, "Gunsmoke's" irascible storekeeper Mr. Jonas, plays a struggling novelist. For real. (Is there no end to this movie's idiocy?)

    ...and I agree. If they serve something this bland, it should at least be on nice china. But no, the production values were on the cheap-O side so it wasn't even a pretty movie. To top off a trite story and bad sets, Jean Simmons was wearing bad hats!

    I was up early about 3am on Sat. morning and on abc they were showing this movie, I myself am not too familar with Victor Mature, but I watched this movie and it was great, I really liked it, Jean Simmons and Victor Mature were really good, the story was interesting and I now want to buy this film on dvd if it is available. I love little treasures like this. I am 33 yrs old and do love old movies, but I love it more when I find good films that I've never seen before, I would definately recommend this movie to all.
