Trivia

Some of the filming took place at Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park in Arkansas. The film crew built a false side onto one of the historic buildings there and then blew it off for a special effect - assuring the State park officials that no harm would come to the building. The explosion was rather larger than promised and caused some damage to the structure of the historic house. See more »

Goofs

The scene showing the First Battle of Bull Run shows the trees without leaves, indicating autumn or winter time. The battle actually took place in July, so the trees would be full of leaves. See more »

Quotes

Wanda Mae: If you was to kiss me, I'd be mighty obliged.
John Geyser: [following the kiss] My mouth's burning!
Wanda Mae: Shucks, I'm sorry, Johnny. It's my chaw.

Focus on family, not the war.
5 August 2004 | by (Tucson, Arizona) – See all my reviews

`The Blue and The Gray' is not a story about the Civil War. It is a long drama about a family set at the time of that war. Running more than six hours, it is indeed long. Yet, anyone interested in human relationships will find that the time is well spent and that no dead points exist. The snippets of the Civil War form a focus for the story and explain some of the relationship issues. They also remind the viewer what a truly difficult time it was for families and for our nation.
