Movie Info

Stephen Rojack (Stuart Whitman) is a decorated war vet who has now found success as an outspoken television personality. During a vicious argument with his wife, Deborah (Eleanor Parker), Stephen snaps and pushes her from his high-rise apartment to her death. He manages to convince the authorities that she killed herself, then reignites an old affair with singer Cherry McMahon (Janet Leigh) -- which doesn't sit well with her jealous mobster boyfriend, Nicky (Les Crane).

    So-So drama with a good cast but missing a certain tension that would make it compelling. Eleanor Parker is in and out of the picture within fifteen minutes.
