Hedy Lamarr was pregnant with her daughter while making this film. Because of her pregnancy she mostly appears in close-ups featuring her face, and scenes had to be filmed carefully in order to conceal her body. See more »
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 »
Wonderful, affected me a lot more than I was expecting.
One of the best movies I've ever seen - and I've seen thousands. What I was expecting to be an empty but sweet chick flick turned into a really sweet story about appreciating the friends you have around you.
I have to say, this film has to have some of the best performances I've ever seen! Robert Walker is his usual adorable self, but I was greatly surprised and impressed by June Allyson's performance. This is my favorite of hers, as she is just so incredibly sincere and easy to love as Walker's invalid girlfriend, Leslie. Rags Ragland gives a brilliant performance as Albert, the slow, but loving friend.
Hedy Lamarr is of course, lovely, but she and Agnes Moorehead seemed to be totally overshadowed by Walker, Ragland, and Allyson who seem to steal the show right out from under them!
It's really a beautiful movie, that makes you think of who your friends really are.
