Anne and "Poppy" Rose are the average American family, with three quirky kids. Anne has a good heart and gives lost cats and dogs a home - and one day also the orphan Jane, a problem child who already tried to kill herself once. At first Poppy is worried and wants to get rid of her, but with love and patience they finally manage to integrate her into the family. Just then Anne invites another orphan, the aggressive handicapped Jimmy-John, to their summer vacation.

The Pledge of Allegiance given in the movie is the official version approved on June 22, 1942. An attorney from Illinois by the name of Louis Albert Bowman later suggested adding "under god" to the pledge to allay fears of a certain segment of the American population who had difficulty understanding the meaning of separation of church and state.

It's not clear what years this "story of my wife" is taking place, but it's framed as taking place in the past. The most readable calendar in the first summer scene shows July 4th on a Friday. That is consistent with 1952, but that month was six months in the future from the film's release date. Also, the calendar for a winter month seen in the kitchen at the start of the film is not correct for any winter month of 1951-52. See more
