Trivia

After giving birth Jo is asked by the hospital attendant if she would mind leaving the hospital after her sixth day. At that time it was common practice for the mother to spend 10-14 days in the hospital after giving birth, whereas now the accepted practice is to send her home the next day (assuming there is no complications).

Goofs

When Chris comes around the hanging laundry in Jo's flashback, we hear the end of his whistling "You Made Me Love You," but his face is totally relaxed, and clearly not that of a person who is whistling. See more »

Quotes

Jo Jones: I suppose you don't think hoarding is very important.
Barbara Thomas: Why don't you relax for a change. Do you think we're going to lose this war or win it, for that matter, on account of a box of lipsticks or a pound of bacon? You know better than that.
Jo Jones: Well, if it was just one pound of bacon, I don't suppose it would make any difference. But what if 20 or 30 million other women did the same thing?
Barbara Thomas: I have enough troubles of my own without worrying about 20 or 30 million dames I don't even know.

Excellent Movie
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when we first got cable and had AMC. (This was back when AMC really did show the golden oldies... real classics.) It was at the beginning of the summer, and so of course i spent my days watching AMC, and my evenings watching I Love Lucy. This was on AMC twice one week, and I loved it. I have been searching for a copy of it ever since. I have checked every movie rental place (including one with dozens and dozens of the good old movies... Gene Kelly, Ava Gardner, etc.) and no one nearby seems to have one. Not even on ebay could I find a copy. I have craved this movie ever since that summer, and remember it as being one of the best movies I had ever seen. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in this type of movie. It is excellent. I miss it so much, I just wish i could see it again.
