Did You Know?

Trivia

MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer quickly rushed this movie into production to cash in on the popularity of the newly discovered Greer Garson, who had just triumphed in Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939). But despite this, the movie was a box office dud, and was all but forgotten until finding a new life on television, where it has remained a favorite for 60 years. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film, when Jeff and Linda are pulled over by the motorcycle cop, in the long shot, their car has a tall, fancy, sculpted radiator cap. But in the closer front (studio) shot, it is missing - as it would have probably obscured Greer Garson's face. When they subsequently arrive at the judges house, the ornate radiator cap is back in place. See more »

Well-worth Watching!
20 September 2013 | by sentjourwlaSee all my reviews

I gave this little ditty a 9 out of 10 because it's worth it to see some very funny dialog, good acting, and three very beautiful stars! Sometimes I'm a classic film 'snob' and prefer not to waste my time watching trash, so please know that I grade harshly. So, it was with delight that I discovered this little gem I'd never heard of. I'm a huge fan of Lew Ayres; he can do no wrong in my book - ever. I see that "Remember?" didn't get glowing reviews, and I urge you not to let that stop you. I rarely laugh out loud while movie-watching, but I found myself doing so! This is an adorable bit of cinema. It was NOT meant to be sophisticated or thought-provoking. It's for FUN - plain and simple!
