The first commercially successful mass-produced disposable paper cup was invented in 1907 by Lawrence Luellen, a Boston lawyer who was concerned with the spread of germs by people using shared glasses and dippers at public water stations. This led to the Dixie Cup Company. See more »
During the early montage showing the lumber process, fluorescent lights are seen on the ceiling of a workshop. While they had just become commercially available when the film was made, this scene takes place in 1884, decades before their refinement. See more »
This picture made Hollywood rebel Frances Farmer a star. A clever sex comedy, set in Wisconsin at the turn of the century and 20 years later, has Farmer in the plum dual role of Lotta Morgan and Lotta Bostrum. Co-stars Edward Arnold and Joel Mcrea do not miss a beat as father and son in the love triangle. Walter Brennan won the first Oscar ever given for Best Supporting Actor. While Frances Farmer has been portrayed [i.e., FRANCES, 1983] as an intense and brooding black sheep of 30s-40s Hollywood, this picture proudly shows her solid comedy and dramatic skills.
