Saw this on TCM recently; most notable for interiors filmed in an actual mansion (not studio sets) and a striking amount of flubbed dialogue -- the wonderful but deep-in-her-cups Helen Walker looks particularly annoyed after pronouncing the word "town" as "trown," probably realizing there would be no retake.

The over-age "girls" include genre favorites Beverly Garland, Mara Corday and Joyce Jameson, and leading man Ross Elliott gives a hilariously hyperactive (perhaps chemically-enhanced) performance.

One striking shower torture shot is held long enough to make it clear that it's the film's raison d'etre.
