In Madge Evans' interview with Leonard Maltin in "Film Fan Magazine" (December 1972), she gave the following testimony about making this film: "Well, this was not his James Whale kind of film. He was much too intelligent, much too good a director for this kind of nonsense, which was all about people cast adrift on an island, a dreadful picture, and he was much, much too good for it. He hated it, and also being a rather uptight Englishman, he showed that he hated it. You could just see that every time he came to a scene, he was saying, 'Oh, my God,' and that doesn't make anybody feel either confident or happy."
It's a long trip, and we've both got a lot to think about!
Although washed away on a deserted island, John Boles continually looks like he just stepped out of a Beverly Hills barber shop, and Marion Martin's bleached blonde hair remains styled and curled, with no dark roots, and she never abandons her false eyelashes and mascara makeup.
