Directed by Douglas Sirk | USA | 108 mins
Playboy Bob Merrick (Rock Hudson) nearly dies in a reckless speedboat accident but is saved by a resuscitator belonging to the widely-beloved Dr. Phillips, who could have used the resuscitator himself, and sadly dies. Having descended into moral tailspin, Merrick meets the painter Randolph, a former acolyte of the deceased Dr. Phillips, and, in his clumsy ardour, eager to perform a solid about-face, shortly thereafter proceeds to harry the poor widow of Dr. Phillips (Jane Wyman) to such an extent that she is struck by an automobile and perhaps permanently blinded. And that’s just the set-up.
