Starring Edmond O'Brien, Joan Fontaine, Ida Lupino, Edmund Gwenn, Kenneth Tabey, Jane Darwell, Peggy Maley, Joan Maxwell. Written and produced by Collier Young. Directed by Ida Lupino. 

A beautifulloy-crafted screen drama of illicit desire and emotional betrayal. Edmund O'Briend (D.O.A.) is brilliant as a "travelling salesman" with a devoted wife in one town and a pregnant mistress in another.  Famed actor-producer-director Ida Lupino stars and directs in her finest screen effort. Alluring Joan Fontaine drips with sensuality as the young mistress. One of the top independent productions released by RKO in the 50s?
