Not a great film, but pretty much anything with Ava Gardner is worth watching. Her co-star in this, Robert Walker, still reeling from being dumped by his ambitious wife Jennifer Jones for producer David Selznick, got a bad case of the Avas. Most of the men who spent any amount of time around her fell hard, but in Walker’s case, it turned into a crazy-stalker obsession.

It was so cold while filming, the bra-less beauty had to carry a small heater around with her to prevent her nipples from protruding through her tunic.
