Did You Know?

Trivia

The final Harvest Moon number was shot in Technicolor while the rest of the film was black/white. This was because of shortages of material needed for color stock due to the war. Studios used their limited color stock for their top films. See more »

Goofs

During the Harvest Moon number near the end, the stage has the horse and carriage going left to right and then larger going right to left, creating the illusion of the horse and carriage moving down a winding road closer toward the audience. However, the horse and carriage then moving left to right again closer to the audience started before the previous right to left move had cleared the stage and for an instant both can be seen.

Pleasant For Sheridan or Morgan Fans
1 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Too bad the entire film wasn't photographed in Technicolor. The story is very fictionalized, as were all Hollywood musical biographies. Would it be a spoiler to mention that historically Bayes and Norworth didn't live happily ever after? Norworth was #3 of Bayes's five husbands.

Interesting to note that in the earlier Warner's musical "Yankee Doodle Dandy", that Bayes is portrayed as a "heavy", taking Mary Cohan's song away from her.

Insofar as voice dubbing is concerned, all actors are ultimately dubbed, whether with their own singing voice or someone else's. Nobody sings "live" on camera. Not much different than today's music videos where the performer is only doing a lip-sync to the recording (and you thought they had all those electronic instruments and back-up singers hidden in the bushes, right?).

This film is still enjoyable for the music and the performances of the actors. I think it's well worth the time to view it.
