Trivia According to a 1986 Knoxville Journal article, Robert Preston was one of the few people involved in the production that knew how to drive the borrowed 1915 Model T used in the film, and he wanted it to be used accurately. In one scene the director had wanted to have the Model T parked with the headlights on, but without the motor running. Those vehicles were not equipped with batteries, though, and electricity for lights was supplied by the running motor. The director wanted to have a battery hooked up to the car, but Preston refused, saying that Model T buffs would notice the inaccuracy if the lamps were lit without the motor running. See more »
