With a 12-week continuous run, it set a house record as the Radio City Music Hall's longest-running film to date. Demand for tickets was so great, they had to open the box office at 7:45 a.m. each morning. The theatre's manager told Mervyn LeRoy it could easily have played another 12 weeks, but MGM's parent company - Loew's, Inc. - pulled it to play in their own theatres. See more »
The bulk of the story takes place from 1920-1935, yet all of the women's hairstyles and clothing are strictly and very inappropriately in the 1942 fashion. See more »

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.
