After being found wandering the streets of Los Angeles, a severely catatonic woman tells a doctor the complex story of how she wound up there.
Silvia Richards wrote the first draft of the screenplay for the film. However, in order to try and repeat the success of Mildred Pierce (1945), producer Jerry Wald hired Ranald MacDougall to do a complete rewrite.
Aren't you going to kiss me?
David Sutton: I had no plans one way or the other.
Louise: All right, then. Go ahead and kiss me. You don't have to mean it.
Louise: I didn't expect you to mean it *that* little.
David Sutton: When a woman kisses me, Louise, she has to take pot luck.
When Louise is brought into the hospital, Dr Willard examines her and says to another doctor that she's "beautiful, intelligent, and frustrated". However, she's in a coma so he has no way of knowing if she's intelligent or frustrated.
