Honest LA insurance detective Joe Peters becomes corrupt after falling in love with sensual gold-digger model Diane.
Some of Paul Sawtell's score was simply recycled from the four "Dick Tracy" films that RKO released in the late 1940s.
Take plenty of warm clothes. It's awful cold in the mountains.
Joe Peters: Who gets cold on a honeymoon?
Mrs. MacDonald: Oh, Mr. Peters!
Miller tells Joe Peters he revealed himself as being associated with the robbery because Peters had said five men (plus the pilot) were involved at a time when that information was not known to the insurance company. Yet, immediately afterwards, Egan is cross-examining the pilot and mentioned the five men as though it was a fact, before the pilot actually admitted it.
The opening credits seem to be an early attempt at creative credits where the credits try to fit the blacktop of the road we're "traveling" on.
