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.

In the beginning, just after Dick Powell sits down in his office, Raymond Burr starts talking but one part of his speech is an obvious cut with a different recording of his voice between two other cuts. ("Just a kind word, and a pat on the back for a job well done").
