Fred Zinnemann and producer, Samuel Marx, invited Morton Thompson, the author of the underlying material in his book 'Joe, the Wounded Tennis Player,' to a Projection Room screening of the first rough cut, which included 'Scene Missing" tags and ragged sound. When that first screening ended, Mort got up, never looked at either Zinnemann or Marx, and walked angrily out, slamming the door. Marx commented that obviously, authors do not need their written word to show their unhappiness. See more »
Three words: Turner Classic Movies! Uncut and no commericals. Anyway, I saw this lovely movie last night and just loved it. The movie is a definite "animal" movie as the kid not only talks to horses, but dogs, chickens and other animals as well. The whole family is a little eccentric and Spring Byington fits that bill perfectly and was perfectly cast as the head of household and a woman with a truly open mind- ready to at least consider just about any possibility- rather than just shouting "NO" at any unusual idea. I try to be more like that- with the ability to accept change for what it is: inevitable. Her character does however, have the certainty of conviction that all change is for the better- I'm not so sure. Anyway, the movie does have it's sad parts- lessons of loss and recovery- greed and selflessness- all wrapped in a movie that not "too" preachy- there's even a funny chicken scene!
