At the dress shop there is no latch or lock hardware visible on the edges of the front doors, although there appears to be a knob for a deadbolt above the handle of the right door, there is no corresponding plate or bolt on the door edges. This is a common shortcut made by set carpenters. See more »
Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Do you know you haven't said a word since we left the restaurant? You don't talk very much, do you?
I'm a listener. A very important part of society - a listener. Without us, who would the talkers talk to - each other? Talkers don't listen to themselves, much less other talkers.
Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Well, for a listener, that's quite a lot of gab!
I may not say anything again until... June 14!

Lovely little drama about a hopeless love affair told in remembrance. Shirley Booth is incredibly moving in a beautifully simple performance and Robert Ryan a fine match in a understated part very different from his usual gruff often cruel characters. If you are only familiar with Shirley Booth from her years as "Hazel" she will be a revelation here. She and Ryan are pretty much the whole show with the other actors unmemorable excepting the neighbor's daughter and only because she is such an odious little brat. For discriminating audiences who enjoy superior acting and don't mind that the actors look and behave like real people.
