For several years, Sydney Pollack planned to remake the film, ultimately deciding against doing so. Anthony Minghella also toyed with the idea but felt that some of the plot contrivances simply wouldn't translate for modern-day audiences. See more »
In the sequence where Rainier (Colman) see his wife off at a London railway station (about 113m into the film), there's a tracking shot as the pair walk along the station platform. The shadow of the camera is briefly, but clearly, visible on a pillar moving through the foreground of the shot. See more »
Yes, Mr. Rainier.
Owing to lamentable weakness of character I'm having lunch at the Savoy - with your approval, I understand.
I thoroughly approve.

One of the most irretrievably romantic films ever made, Random Harvest is an absolute must for romantics of all ages. I'd agree that Ronald Colman is a bit too old for the early parts of the story, but that didn't stop him from giving a magnificent performance. And Greer Garson is every bit his match in a perfect role. However, if you possibly can, read James Hilton's amazing book first; the movie totally negates the important plot twist that makes the last page of the book such an incredibly emotional experience.
