The previous play was produced on Broadway by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The film's producers purchased the rights for $2500 for each week of the play's run, up to $150,000, on the condition that the film would not be made until the play closed. The stage version ended up running for nearly two years. The original Broadway production opened on October 19, 1944 at the Music Box Theater and ran for 713 performances with a cast that included Marlon Brando in his Broadway debut. See more »
In the shots of the uncle's trip to San Francisco, as the ferry is pulling into the dock, the Oakland Bay Bridge is seen in the background. This bridge was not built until 1933, yet this movie is set circa 1910. See more »
I finally sat down and watched this movie completely this morning and was completely astounded by the greatness of it.
I knew it was a good movie, but it was one of those movies I always thought was too good to be true, too sweet, too goody-goody.
Boy, was I wrong. It was a little bit of history, it was every family rolled into one movie.
I could identify with almost every scene in the movie and not because of the era but because of the feelings it provoked. There was so much warmth, so much hope and yet it wasn't the "perfect" family, it was just people living life on life's terms.
I'm so glad I finally took the time to watch "I Remember Mama"
