Peg Martin's comment to her husband about a one armed baseball player toward the end of the film was correct. Peter Gray played one season for the St. Louis Browns. He batted .333 in the minors, and .218 in the majors. He played left and center field, and he had a .958 fielding average. His glove is in the museum at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. See more »
Young Widow was an excellent obscure drama taking place during World War II
It's possible that during the Blondie movie series' hiatus during 1944, Penny Singleton made this since there's also no indication that World War II was even close to being over. Anyway, she plays an old friend of Jane Russell who's the title character as her hubby lost it at Berlin. Louis Hayward is the soldier who pursues her but partly backs down when he finds out the truth about her. Besides Penny, there's another blonde-Marie Wilson-who plays the usual dumb persona associated with her in contrast to Ms. Singleton's smartness. I'll just now say this was both touching and funny in spots so on that note, I highly recommend Young Widow.
