Continuity: After Mary spills her glass at lunch (back to camera), the liquid soaks the table cloth hanging several inches over the edge of the table. In the next shot, she's blotting the stain (face to camera), and there's a good inch of dry tablecloth between the stain and the edge of the table.See more »
James Tyrone:[Edmund has just recited a piece of poetry] You recite it well... Who wrote it?
Edmund Tyrone:Baudelaire.
James Tyrone:[Dismissively] Never heard of him. Where you get your taste in authors...
James Tyrone:[Motioning to Edmund's bookshelves] This damned library of yours: Voltaire and Rousseau and Schopenhauer. And Ibsen... Atheists, fools and madmen! And your poet, this... "Baudelaire." And Swinburne, and Oscar Wilde. Whitman and Poe... Whoremongers and degenerates! When I've got three good sets of Shakespeare there you can read...
Edmund Tyrone:They say he was a souse, too.

Katharine Hepburn's triumph, 1 October 2002
Author: Kieren J. Valente from Evora, Portugal

Let me elaborate a little on this title - I don't think any of the four major players failed to do an exceptional work on this film, I just happen to think Katharine Hepburn's portrayal of Mary Tyrone's character does Eugene O'Neil's play most justice and herself an outstanding tragedienne's performance on film, a reason enough for all of us to be thankful!
