Olivia de Havilland,
One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by MCA ever since. Its earliest documented telecast took place in Chicago Thursday 19 March 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2), and its tasty title slowly but surely made it a popular local favorite around the country; it first aired in Phoenix 11 May 1959 on KVAR (Channel 12), in Los Angeles 7 October 1959 on KNXT (Channel 2), in Johnstown 27 October 1959 on WJAC (Channel 6), in Asheville 20 December 1959 on WLOS (Channel 13), in Omaha 31 December 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), in Grand Rapids 18 January 1959 on WOOD (Channel 8), in Columbus 3 February 1960 on WBNS (Channel 10), in Detroit 5 February 1960 on WJBK (Channel 2), in Philadelphia 14 March 1960 on WCAU (Channel 10), and in Pittsburgh 18 September 1960 on KDKA (Channel 2).

I was left unsure why Arthus Roche's name appeared on the credits. The screenplay bears no resemblance to the novel, and I am driven to the conclusion that using the title of a well known book (and hence having to credit it's author) was thought to be a good way of getting an audience for a second rate low budget movie. Of course, the novel being set in a Broadway of extremely dubious morals wouldn't have gone down too well with the US censor, or with the Hollywood moguls who would would also not have been to keen on the portrayal in the novel of a gangster mixing freely with the Broadway bosses. The issue (seemingly well researched in the novel) of the hardware shop as a front for the supply of weapons to the gangs would have been a bit hard to swallow, but with all those plot changes, why not just write a new screenplay?
