Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Robert Aldrich puts his signature grim and dark sensibility on this intense noir melodrama, starring Joan Crawford as an older career-driven femme falling for the younger and handsome Cliff Robertson, not realizing his mental problems."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The collision of Aldrich's tough style with the soapy material makes for a film that never loses its queasy tension."
‑ Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine
"Irresistible and perverse"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Though it's strictly soap opera, Joan Crawford lifts it higher than all the falling autumn leaves."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
