Captivating character development and great story line will have you on the edge until the very end. To think that this film was almost lost to the world in a studio fire makes me glad to have had the opportunity to watch it.

Wonderful film and performances. Beautiful portrait of 1950s San Francisco. The final scenes with the heroine riding a roller coaster are particularly thrilling!
