Trivia Preston Sturges has written that he based the story on his second wife's grandfather, C.W. Post, founder of a company which later became General Foods. However, except for Post's humble beginnings and the fact he committed suicide, the story bore no resemblance to his life. See more »

Quotes Henry: [narrating] When I was a kid, we didn't have radios and moving pictures and automobiles and all things like kids have today. We had fun just the same. And the place we liked best was the swimming hole.
