The title is taken from a quotation that appears in hardback versions of the novel (but omitted from most paperback printings.) The quotation is: "According to a British Official Report, bombs fell at Random." - German Official Report. The movie renames the Rainier ancestral home "Random Hall" to better tie in with the title, although in the novel, the estate is named "Stourton". See more »
When Rainier hosts a dinner for the Prime Minister, we see briefly on screen the invitation card. It says, "...requests the honor of your company." The English spell it "honour". See more »
1920. Three years gone. Three years. France - I remember distinctly. But after that - what after that? Liverpool - what am I doing here? Where have I been? Better go home. Yes - may clear things up. Better go home - .

The only movie that comes close to "Random Harvest" in sheer heart-wrenching romanticism is"Golden Earrings," with Ray Milland and Marlene Dietrich. Now THOSE were movies!! Yes,I'm stuck in the 40's,and very happy to be there! I cannot get enough of Ronald Colman's voice,especially in this movie.He has the most beautiful inflections of any actor I've heard,on par with Orson Welles,I think,but in a different way. I won't give away any plot twists,but suffice it to say there is one heart-grabbing scene that knocks you out.This movie is not to be missed by sentimental saps who loves black and white movies from the 40's.This is one of the very best.
