When I go two-thirds of the way through a mystery film and can't figure out where a film is going, I wonder if it's just me, or if there's not a logical progression of a plot line. In this case, since I had read a bit about the film in advance, my confusion was because that logical progression of a plot line was missing. What the heck does the title mean? Also not logical. And then, in the last 15 minutes, everything is pulled together...just a little too easily and slickly. Having said all that, there were two positives -- great scenery in Ireland, and the typical feisty performance of Susan Hayward. Peter Finch was very good, also. Fortunately, I can enjoy a bad film when Susan Hayward is in it. Otherwise, I'd be disappointed that I spent two hours on this film.
