The plot element of Helen Ellswirth (Dame Elizabeth Taylor) contracting pneumonia interestingly foreshadows the actress' real-life battle with the disease several years later. Taylor always insisted it was her near-death experience and resultant tracheotomy, and not her performance, that won her an Oscar for BUtterfield 8 (1960). See more »
Near the end of the film, when Helen is wearing the red dress, Charlie comes home drunk and puts the chain on the door. The chain is a lot longer than a normal door chain, at least 12 inches. When Helen comes home later and tries to get in, the chain is now much shorter. It's now the length of a normal door chain. See more »
A great romantic classic. I saw it again now in 9/2001. Some would say that it is a little slow. I still loved it. Liz Taylor looks as beautiful as ever. But the real star is Van Johnson. Great acting. The emotion that he shows is outstanding and very real. I am an older man now...57 years old. I had to reach for my hanky several times. The love...the joy...the tears... and the sorrow of a man for his wife and his child. Well...well...it is too bad they don't have movies like this anymore. I miss them. This is one I will save and enjoy seeing again someday....
