Not a good movie. Saul Bass's credits are the high point. However, the film stars Capucine, and I have always had a soft spot for her. She was used better in comedy than drama but I suspect she could have done more if she was asked, and she was as fine a clotheshorse as Silvana Mangano. In her second film, Jane Fonda is also a treat. Stanwyck, whom I adore, is camp, as she was in "The Violent Men."
Under rated adaptation of the Nelson Algren novel that finds an artist/bordello worker being pursued by an ex-boyfriend from a more innocent past who wants to marry her and later save her. Trio of strong female performances in Capucine, Anne Baxter and Jane Fonda that overcome weaker turns by miscast Laurence Harvey and a too safely written character portrayed by B. Stanwyck. Dated and somewhat lurid but fascinating.
