During the shooting of the movie in England, Sean Connery was confronted by a gun-waving Johnny Stompanato, hoodlum boyfriend of Lana Turner. The jealous hood warned Connery to keep away from Lana. Connery answered by decking Johnny. Shortly thereafter, back in the U.S., Stompanato met his end at the hands of the frightened, butcher-knife-wielding teenage daughter of Lana Turner, Cheryl Crane.

Everybody around here seems to be criticizing this fine piece of melodrama. It feels like a duty to say some good things to save it right away. I only heard about the title yesterday from Amazon, and then, in the afternoon, a friend of mine offered to lend it to me. I appreciated the coincidence. I've just finished watching it, and must confess I really enjoyed the show. The image is great, Lana Turner is beautiful. I will accept the fact that it's not as original as other melodramas, but it definitely uses all the ropes we love about this kind of movies. So my mark here is seven, I had a great time and I would advise anyone interested in melodramas to have a look at it on a sunny day, just before going to the beach. And dream while watching seagulls in the sky.
