  1. I'm 22…channel surfing and decided to watch and the movie just captivate my interest…was compelling, had depth, dialogue, life seemed so simple then and the little things they found entertaining and I tried to relate it how it would be like today….totally enjoyed, surprisingly

  2. william holden miscast in this, too old, he admitted later, but Josh Logan wanted him. Brando probably turned it down, James Dean would have been good, but despite all that, the picture has strength and power, helped me escape that environment as soon as i could. big hit in its day, and it made Kim Novak a star.

  3. The "feel" of this film is SO 1950s. –With the assist of the James Wong Howe (cinematographer) and filmed on location in small town America 1954-55.

  4. Read that Nickerson, Sterling, Hutchinson, Halstead and Salina (all Ks. towns) were film locations. Hard to believe Kim Novak's image is 1955. Way way more modern. In all the plastic hokeyness depicted in the film, just underneath is an incredible sophistication which emerges later as people break out of their shells.
