Continuity: The footstool's position varies between scenes. When Perry falls over the footstool the first time, he places it so that it is near the foot of April's bed. However when April falls over it, it has moved to the middle of the floor some distance away from the beds towards the bathroom. After falling over it a second time, Perry moves it away from the beds and away from the direction of the bathroom. However when he is carrying April out of the bathroom, the footstool is now back in the middle of the floor between the beds and the bathroom.See more »

always remembered with a sigh, 12 July 2003
Author: raineybug

I saw this movie as a little girl and fell in love forever with Louis Jourdan. I have just fleeting memories of it, but remember he was so charming and handsome and adorable. I saw Him in a play as a young teen and never really got over it.

Being so young my moral compass was not fully developed and i simply couldn't believe Lili Palmer wouldn't just take his hand and never look back...Would love to see it again.
