Hollywood actor Charles Castle is pressured by his studio boss into a criminal cover-up to protect his valuable career.
Robert Aldrich rather cattily laid the blame for the film's box office failure at the door of Jack Palance, claiming that he didn't have leading man looks. This obviously didn't bother both parties too much as Palance worked with Aldrich several times later in his career, starting with Attack (1956) the following year.
What do you think of women, kiddie?
Charlie Castle: Oh, there's room in the world for 'em.
In the living room, as Hoff begins "We all love you..." his hands are clasped in front of him. But on the cut, in mid-sentence ("...you're a great artist...") his arms are spread wide.
In the opening credits: Upholstered furniture by Martin/ Brattrud.
