In the opening scenes of the movie you hear Rocky Papasano's full name called out over the loudspeaker just before he meets Angela in the crowd. Papasano is a made-up Italian surname, but in Japanese "papasan" means Mr. Dad. See more »
When Rocky is lying down on Barbie's bed after she has left to sit at the kitchen table, only the second and third buttons on Rocky's shirt are done up, his shirt not tucked into his pants. In the next shot when he is about to get up, the second, third and fourth buttons on the shirt are done up, the shirt still not tucked into his pants. In the next shot as Rocky is now off the bed, all but the top button on his shirt are done up, the front of his shirt now tucked into his pants. See more »
As if to recognize the importance of the script, Arnold Schulman's credit appears right after the main title. This was a rarity in an era when screenplay credits traditionally appeared third to last, before the producer and director cards. See more »
Lovely chemistry between superstars Wood and McQueen make this Robert Mulligan a pure charmer. McQueen sheds his tough guy image to play both romance and even a little comedy as well. Oscar nominee Wood matured beautifully into the role of Angie, the girl who finds she's going to have a baby and it's McQueen's! There is a fine performance from Tom Bosley, in his first major role as a clumsy fellow who tries to win Wood's heart. The conclusion to this film is lovely and full of hope for all young lovers out there. A Must see!!!
