This spiritual cousin of ALL ABOUT EVE, released a year later, is a curious early effort from Nicholas Ray. Presented in a series of flashbacks, this noir-tinged woman's picture tells the tale of a singer (Maureen O'Hara) whose laryngitis prompts the promotion of a younger understudy (Gloria Graham). When fame and fortune comes to the protégé, jealousy boils over and a gun is shot!
Vicki Baum, Herman J. Mankiewicz
