A New York City doctor embarks on a harrowing, night-long odyssey of sexual and moral discovery after his wife reveals a painful secret to him.
This was the only one of Stanley Kubrick's movies to not have either narration or title cards used at some point. A voice-over by Bill Harford was in the screenplay, but Stanley Kubrick chose not to use it.
Dr. Bill Harford:
Honey, have you seen my wallet?
Alice Harford: Isn't it on the bedside table?
Dr. Bill Harford: Now listen, you know we're running a little late.
Alice Harford: I know. How do I look?
Dr. Bill Harford: Perfect.
Alice Harford: Is my hair okay?
Dr. Bill Harford: It's great.
Alice Harford: You're not even looking at it.
Dr. Bill Harford: It's beautiful. You always look beautiful.
A camera shadow is seen on the ground, to the right of Bill, during his first night walk.
Special thanks to the staff of Hamleys of London.
In most non-English language versions translated copies of the letter Dr. Harford recieves when returning to the front gate of the house with the "forbidden party" and of the newspaper article about the ex-Miss N.Y., Mandy, were shot and replaced the original English text.
