An orphaned young woman becomes part of a puppet act and forms a relationship with the anti-social puppeteer.
This film was based on The Saturday Evening Post's Paul Gallico's short story "The Man Who Hated People," published in the 28 October 1950 edition, which was inspired by the children's puppet show "Kukla, Fran and Ollie". Due to the success of the film, Gallico expanded the story into a novella.
You are vell enough established now. And the act is good enough to stand on its own. You don't have to dangle yourself in front of deez vomen.
When Marc plays a magic trick with his cigarette at the notions store, he actually burns Lili's hand, right before playing the trick. We can see Lili jerking her hand apart, but she keeps on watching Marc as if nothing has happened.
