Julie London, the actress playing the part of the wife in the middle of the crisis, became an actress in the 1940's and with her sultry voice and sexy appearance she was a hit. In 1947 she married a little-known actor named Jack Webb, who would become famous as Sergeant Joe Friday in the Dragnet radio and then television programs. That marriage lasted until 1954, and Julie turned her talents to singing rock 'n roll songs as well as appearing in motion pictures like this one. Our drama opens with a short court scene where the facts of the story are established. Mark Loring, son of wealthy industrialist Sir John Loring, is suing for divorce from his wife Mary. A French man from Switzerland is asked whether Mary spent a night in his remote cabin in the Swiss Alps . . . . Just a simple 'yes' or 'no' . . . . No need for details . . . . His honest answer is 'yes' . . . . Then Mary Loring, played by Julie London, takes the stand. She is asked if she is soon to become a mother, and her answer is affirmative . . . . Then she is asked if she knows who the father of her child is, and she truthfully tells the barrister that she does not know who the father of her baby is . . . . What scandal lies ahead in this story? . . . . What kind of woman is this lady? . . . . What salacious details remain for us to watch and judge? We learn that her husband Mark is a Grand Prix race driver who lives life in the fast lane, and must be the winner in everything he does . . . And he must own completely and totally everything he has. . . . Including his beautiful young American wife Mary. Mary is a well-known nightclub singer from America with as much fame as he has, and this does not sit well at all with Mark . . . . Mary was his wife . . . His exclusive property to have and do with as he wanted, and no other man must even speak to her in any familiar manner. We soon see that the marriage is strained, and we will soon learn that Mary has a competitor for the love of her husband . . . . There is someone else who wants to have Mark and be rid of Mary . . . . And this person has powerful control over Mark . . . . Someone who will do everything possible to break up the marriage . . . . Surprises lie ahead, and even when you learn the details, surprises remain . . . Debate over one of the most divisive sexual subjects of the twentieth century lie ahead. A court case as pivotal as any that face a nation and a society will be considered in this drama. Today, looking back to 1958, especially youngsters may not realize the seriousness of this issue, but I am confident that movie goers around the world discussed, argued and disagreed about this question of adultery. . . . You will not predict the verdict of the jury . . . Many couples watching the story even today will argue over their differing views of the subject. . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
