In the poster art and some surviving stills, Hepburn wears a light-colored straw hat with her final costume in the film. this hat never appears in the film and must have been used only for photos before the film's release before being replaced with the wide-brimmed dark felt hat that is actually in the film.

As Johnny and Ned leave the playroom, a focused shadow of the mike boom crosses Ned's face (at 27:36 on the Columbia/SONY DVD). See more »
You see Case, the trouble with me is that I never could decide whether I wanted to be Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale, or John L. Lewis.

This is such a sweet, funny, heartfelt movie. The first time I saw it, I immediately wanted to see it again. Like so many of Katharine Hepburn's movies, it's about the kind of love you don't often see in movies. Hers is a pure, sweet, and intelligent love, one which we see develop and with which, by the end of the movie, we wholeheartedly agree. Cary Grant is just delightful in his acrobatics and his naivete, and Hepburn has all of her idealism and wisdom, and proves once again that the two aren't mutually exclusive. If you love witty and intelligent romantic comedy, then this is for you. Not as wonderful as The Philadelphia Story, but great nonetheless.
