Trivia

According to a 1986 Knoxville Journal article, Robert Preston was one of the few people involved in the production that knew how to drive the borrowed 1915 Model T used in the film, and he wanted it to be used accurately. In one scene the director had wanted to have the Model T parked with the headlights on, but without the motor running. Those vehicles were not equipped with batteries, though, and electricity for lights was supplied by the running motor. The director wanted to have a battery hooked up to the car, but Preston refused, saying that Model T buffs would notice the inaccuracy if the lamps were lit without the motor running. See more »

I found this movie available for download on http://www.cinemanow.com. The quality is not the best, but it is watchable and reasonably priced.

As a resident of the neighborhood about which James Agee wrote and where he lived, I find this movie particularly of interest. The producers of this film made a great choice for its authenticity when they chose to film it in the actual Fort Sanders neighborhood where the story took place.

The young boy in the film expresses genuine emotion, unusual for a boy of his age.

To see clips of the movie's premiere at the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville in 1963, check out the local NBC affiliate's archives at http://www.wbir.com.
