Part of that movie was filmed in my parents house.
My Dad was stationed in the navy in key west and he and my Mom lived in the half of the house that the indoor fight scene took place in. It was a preachers house and they shared the kitchen with my Mom and Dad. They had to eat box lunches during filming. I am told some of the actors and actress played with me, I was a baby at the time. They actually took the shutters and hung them crooked for the movie. If memory serves me right the house is on 124 union street. Parts of the film were shot on the navy base and parts of the movie were shot in Tarpon Springs. So of course when I found it on DVD I had to get copies for everyone. I even had to buy my dad a DVD player so he could watch it. Considering it was a movie filmed with 1953 technology it is a good movie.

This is a film you can view over and over again, a great 1953 film with a great cast of GIANTS in the film industry with great acting by Gilbert Roland, J. Carrol Nash, Terry Moore( was married to the late Howard Hughes), Richard Boone and Peter Graves. Enjoyed the film location of Tarpon Springs, Fla., along the Sponge Docks where the Greeks have a historical heritage. Robert Wagner was just starting out in the film business and becoming a super star for the early 1950's and beyond, and his dark hair in this picture changed his appearance, however, his voice gives him away. There is lots of innocent 1950's love scenes and plenty of drama and excitement to keep you in your seats. This is a wonderful film Classic for all generations to view and enjoy over and over again!
