When Johnny is in the monastery and sees the newspaper article about Flo's engagement to Clarence, the entire article is shown on-screen. When Johnny reads the story aloud, he adds in the sentence "Never in my life, Miss Addams told reporters, have I been so thrilled and happy." That sentence did not appear in the news article.

I do wish when individuals watch a movie that they get the person who says the lines correct. It is not Donald Crisp that makes the comments about the watermelon to Edward G. Robinson. Donald Crisp as Brother Superior is walking the young boy out of the room after giving him $2.00 for shoes. The other two monks make the comments to Robinson about not liking watermelon and then Robinson says "I get it." Now that that is out of the way, this is an excellent movie with a cast of characters that will later go on to become major stars i.e.-Humphrey Bogar and Ralph Bellamy. There are also plenty of strong character actors in this wonderful movie such as Allen Jenkins and Cecil Kellaway.
