Trivia

At the time this movie was being filmed, the demolition of the above-track-level portions of New York's Pennsylvania Station was beginning. In the opening scene of Evie Jackson's arrival in New York, you can see several panes of station windows broken and replaced with boards. By 1966, the station had been converted from its old to its new form, and the new Madison Square Garden had been added on top of it. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, in the train station, the lady in the leopard skin style hat is behind Evie. In the next scene, you see the same lady standing at the counter of the information booth as Evie arrives to answer the passenger page for her. See more »

A sweet romantic movie.
25 December 2001 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

A lonely and single woman look for love and companionship in New York City at a postmasters' convention. This sweet film brought tears to my eyes watching it. Dear Heart was wonderfully acted by Geraldine Page, Glenn Ford, and Angela Lansbury. It was a delight to watch.
