Married insurance adjuster John Forbes falls for femme fatale Mona Stevens while her boyfriend is in jail and all suffer serious consequences as a result.
To get by the Hayes Code office, that would normally not allow a good guy (John) to be an adulterer - and suffer no consequences - director De Toth met with two prominent officials with the office who were married and let them know he knew of their mistresses. The production did not have any problems with the Hayes Code after that meeting.
She probably doesn't appeal to you but for me, she's just what I told the doctor to order.
When John goes to Mona's apartment, he walks up the stairs, and at the top there is a window into her kitchen and the apartment door. However, in the next shot from inside her apartment when John pushes her door open, we can see the arrangement and alignment of the hallway and stairway has changed, and the railing of the stairs is different as well.
