Did You Know?

Trivia

According to Beverly Garland, this film was not as good as it should have been because Perry Lopez was not a good actor. She felt there were many scenes where she performed well, but the scene had to be redone several times because Lopez could not properly hit his marks. See more »

Goofs

Blatantly obvious use of rear-screen projection when Novack and Dr. Lewy are looking into the hospital's nursery. The angles of the window and corner in the nursery are way off and the babies appear much larger than they would normally be if there was an actual nursery set behind the glass. See more »
