Preminger's lavish production of the erotic historical novel is artistically one of his weakest films, but also one of his biggest commercial hits.

Disappointing adaptation of Kathleen Winsor's lurid best-seller novel.

While the production was surprisingly lavish (the budget was something around $6.5 million), the film suffers from its inability to detail the eroticism of the story due to 1940s censorship.

The film runs for two hours and twenty minutes, which is just about an hour too long considering its repetitious nature and the fact that it is pretty trashy stuff.

Preminger's direction lacks the sophisticated lightness of touch that Mitchell Leisen brought to the in some ways similar Kitty.

It's a lush Fox production, photographed in Technicolor by the great Leon Shamroy and directed by a wholly uninterested Otto Preminger.
