Goofs

Near the end of the movie, when the train is backed up to the yard, and Amanda has switched the points, she runs towards the train as it is leaving. The track they pass over passes the locomotive when the camera shows Robert reaching for her, but when the camera shows her running, she has yet to run over the track until the end, when Robert picks her up.

Just one question: Where did she keep her lipstick?
4 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Always one to buck the trend, I love this film! And has done since it was made. It was the fantastic music to begin with, but it drew me in. Goodness knows why it's taken me such a lengthy time to write this. It's an excellent cast, very well photographed and makes me smile. What's not to like? So, it's different from the 1939 version? Of course it is: there's forty years between them! One isn't better than the other. They're just different. However, any film which makes me smile is a winner in my book. I have it on DVD, but I'm always glad to watch it on the telly. Did I mention I love the music? I wish I could buy that on its own.
