Goofs

When Katherine and George Messenger are taken to prison there is razor wire on the fences. According to Wikipedia it is only from the early 1970s that unreinforced barbed tape was commonly used in perimeter barriers of US prisons. This movie was based in the 1950's well before the introduction of this form of security barrier. See more »

Shattered Dreams
20 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie and I thought it was very good and it showed the trials of being poor is society at that time. Today it is not as bad but you can still get stuck in the system and lost in the cracks. Back then so many families were torn apart for no reason. Greed, lust, lying, and having money could get you everything and the poor just got poorer. There were two classes, the have and the have not classes. I came from a middle class family but my father did not. He would have been considered poor white trash. When he died he had a considerable bank account and a home that was paid off. My mother wants for nothing even now when dad has been gone for 10 years. Being poor is a matter is circumstance and not usually a life choice as was shown in this film. They did not choose to live that way and aspired to live better. Circumstances can be changed! I enjoyed this movie and would probably buy it if on DVD.
