The Southwest Airlines plane used in the film is a Douglas DC-3C, made in 1944, registration N63440. It was originally manufactured for the Army for use in WWII as a C-47 Skytrain, registration 43-15728. It was acquired by SWA in 1946, converted to passenger use and flew with them until 1958. As of 2016 it had been sitting at the Arlington (Wash.) municipal airport for several years, back in its WWII paint scheme. See more »

Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Do you know you haven't said a word since we left the restaurant? You don't talk very much, do you?
I'm a listener. A very important part of society - a listener. Without us, who would the talkers talk to - each other? Talkers don't listen to themselves, much less other talkers.
Mrs. Vivien Leslie:
Well, for a listener, that's quite a lot of gab!
I may not say anything again until... June 14!

Lovely little drama about a hopeless love affair told in remembrance. Shirley Booth is incredibly moving in a beautifully simple performance and Robert Ryan a fine match in a understated part very different from his usual gruff often cruel characters. If you are only familiar with Shirley Booth from her years as "Hazel" she will be a revelation here. She and Ryan are pretty much the whole show with the other actors unmemorable excepting the neighbor's daughter and only because she is such an odious little brat. For discriminating audiences who enjoy superior acting and don't mind that the actors look and behave like real people.
