Trivia

Despite his portrayal of the cheerful and optimistic Jimmy Dobson in this film, Robert Walker was enduring severe bouts of stress and depression. During production he was embroiled in divorce proceedings with his estranged wife, Jennifer Jones, who had left Walker and their children for producer David O. Selznick. The situation left a lasting impression on Walker, who never quite recovered, and battled depression for the rest of his short life. The cast and crew of this film marveled at Walker's ability to portray the chipper Jimmy while he was experiencing such sadness and hardships in real life. See more »

A 'Feel-Good' Movie! Very Refreshing
2 September 2006 | by wndlzSee all my reviews

Some viewers may view this film as just another old-fashioned movie. To me, this was very clean, fresh, and genuinely funny and entertaining film. There are no complicated gimmicks or special effects, but it exemplifies the best traits of human beings; optimism, good humor, romantic love, and the kind of respect that a decent human being would show, in all of their relationships. If anything, it would be nice if we could seriously ponder these values as being worthy, instead of dismissing them, as being old fashion or downright sappy. Hedy was the personification of regal elegance, but with a warm heart; Robert Walker, was very likable and funny; June Allyson, Rags Ragland, were as warmly effective as the two leads. A very positive and sensitive film. Too bad these qualities make this a 'chick flick' in today's world. I know there was a time, when a family could enjoy a movie like this, without feeling weird, because their adrenaline drives were not being satisfied by glorified violence, and a general disrespect for anything decent or human.
