Trivia

Hedy Lamarr insisted to MGM that she be billed first in this production. Lamarr's relative star power had waned in recent years, and several of the film's up-and-coming young stars were likely more popular with audiences at the time. After a heated fight with the star, the studio acquiesced and Lamarr received top billing. However, her inflexibility on the matter likely contributed to the studio's unwillingness to renew her contract, and as result, this was her last motion picture collaboration with MGM. See more »

Goofs

Throughout most of the film, the lighting produces shadows and effects which would be inconsistent with the natural or artificial lighting in the scenes. This occurs both indoors and outdoors. See more »

A 'Feel-Good' Movie! Very Refreshing
2 September 2006 | by (Lone Pine, CA) – See all my reviews

Some viewers may view this film as just another old-fashioned movie. To me, this was very clean, fresh, and genuinely funny and entertaining film. There are no complicated gimmicks or special effects, but it exemplifies the best traits of human beings; optimism, good humor, romantic love, and the kind of respect that a decent human being would show, in all of their relationships. If anything, it would be nice if we could seriously ponder these values as being worthy, instead of dismissing them, as being old fashion or downright sappy. Hedy was the personification of regal elegance, but with a warm heart; Robert Walker, was very likable and funny; June Allyson, Rags Ragland, were as warmly effective as the two leads. A very positive and sensitive film. Too bad these qualities make this a 'chick flick' in today's world. I know there was a time, when a family could enjoy a movie like this, without feeling weird, because their adrenaline drives were not being satisfied by glorified violence, and a general disrespect for anything decent or human.
