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.

Ann Sheridan Shines, As Does The Movie
7 December 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Ann Sheridan and Dennis Morgan, as singing duo Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth, are wonderful portraying the Broadway stars who had to struggle just to perform together.

The beautiful Ann Sheridan does a fine job portraying a women who loves her partner but is willing to make a sacrifice for what she believes will help his career.

Kudos to the production crew for a visually enjoyable movie. Add in a few good musical numbers and you have a fun, uplifting movie with an occasional bittersweet moment thrown in for good measure.

And, with all due respect to Lynn Martin, who did the vocals for Ann Sheridan, I personally would like to have heard Ann Sheridan sing in this movie. Perhaps a special edition will surface one day for Shine On, Harvest Moon.
