The little girl, played by 9 year old Jo Ann Marlowe, in bed after her mother dies asks the question `Does it hurt when you die?` With the benefit of hindsight a chilling question. Jo Ann Marlowe was injured in a car accident in 1968 & in a coma for 22 years until her death in 1991 at age 55. Tragic.
Wonderful, this movie was on my list of noir films that I need to find, thank you very much.
