It is stipulated that the movie takes place in June 1944. Barbara Nichols mentions that she hasn't heard from her Marine boyfriend in months because "he's busy on Iwo Jima." The invasion of Iwo Jima started in February of 1945. See more »
I just watched That Kind of Woman on TCM. I'm generally not into old movies, but this one seemed very interesting and it proved to be more than that. It is definitely not your typical love story, of which I am also not usually fond. The dialogue in the script blew me away. Walter Bernstein must have taken great pains to write this screenplay. I definitely want to read the story on which it was based.
The host on TCM said that this movie never became very popular despite the fame of Sophia Loren and Tab Hunter, and I can see why. It's comment on the society of that time was probably not highly regarded by the movie critics and people of influence during that era. I, however, thoroughly enjoyed the social criticism found in the plot, and the acting was phenomenal. Jack Warden and Barbara Nichols stole the show in my opinion. I am definitely going to check out more movies by Sidney Lumet, as well as, writings by Robert Lowry. If you're the kind of person who enjoys discovering a diamond in the rough, you will love this movie.
