The Bundy family try to have a good family Christmas, despite World War 2.
Did You Know?
Pittsfield, MA, where Leah Bundy works in a war plant, is 174.2 miles from Rockport, the Bundys' home town. As of 2017, it's a little more than three hours, thirty minutes' trip via I-90 E, or approximately four hours via "surface roads." By bus, in a snowstorm, at night, in 1944 it might stretch to five or more hours. See more
After the bus accident, Aaron and the bus driver discover a broken tie-rod in the steering system, so the bus could not be driven, as is said. Later the bus is shown being flat-towed, with all four wheels on the ground. With a broken tie-rod, the vehicle would have to be towed with the front wheels off the ground, as the right wheel would not track. See more
