In several prominent scenes both on farmsteads and in the church, there is a farmer with a "Carhartt logo" on his work jacket. Although the Carhartt company made work clothes since 1889, in the 1920's they were mostly worn by railroad workers, not farmers. In addition, the "C" type logo was not used until much later.

Excellent film from a new talent in Hollywood, Hurray!
This film is marvelous, I was able to have a sneak peak as a student here at the U of M because my teacher (Tom Pope) actually aided in the screenplay of this wonderful debut. Avoiding all the clichés of a typical Hollywood romance, this one doesn't go strait for the tear ducts but if it doesn't warm those puppies up by the end than you're a heartless person. Excellent cast, story and directing, I cannot wait till this is out there for the public. There was a Q&A afterward with the director (Ali) and the producers, and it was so interesting to hear and see their processes in their own words, wonderful men who deserve all the success in the world with this film, a great movie for all ages, truly original and moving.
