ABOUT THIS TITLE
Small-town accountant Frank Bigelow goes to San Francisco for a week's fun prior to settling down with fiancée Paula. After a night on the town, he wakes up with more than just a hangover; doctors tell him he's been given a "luminous toxin" with no antidote and has, at most, a week to live! Not knowing who did it or why, Bigelow embarks on a frantic odyssey to find his own murderer.

The scene in which Bigelow runs in panic through the streets after learning he has been poisoned was a stolen shot. The pedestrians had no idea a movie was being made and no warning that Edmond O'Brien would be plowing through them.
When Frank Bigelow registers at the Allison Hotel in Los Angeles, the name directly above is Russell Rouse, one of the writers. Also on the register is Ernest Laszlo, the director of photography and Marty Moss, the assistant director.
Film debut of Beverly Garland (billed as "Beverly Campbell").
