Trivia

Although a Paramount film, Warner Bros. acquired the rights for the 1941 and 1948 remakes, so it is in the MGM/UA and Turner library with a running time of 69 minutes. However, some cutting of the original must have taken place, because both Clara Blandick (who is credited on-screen) and Sam Hardy do not appear in their print. See more »

Quotes

The actress Frances Fuller
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie, "One Sunday Afternoon," because of Gary Cooper. I was enchanted by the unknown actress, Frances Fuller. She was far different from the character that opened the movie. I first thought what has the Gary Cooper character gotten himself into. My favorite scene was the first date at the carnival. Gary Cooper and the tree was perfect. Boys do act like that on first dates. I know from experience. I wanted to know more about Frances Fuller. Why she was never a big star. I searched the internet for info about her career. Although I'm satisfied with the results, I'm still puzzled that she wasn't a bigger star. I'll try to see all her movies. Oh yes, Fay Wray. That's not the girl the big ape loved. Entirely different.
