    I can't believe I forgot there were cops who worked as partners and were named Bert and Ernie in the movie.

    My wife just said the same thing. "Bert . . and Ernie?"

    I know it's cheese . . .but that slice of Americana gets me every time. I like the movie. It doesn't hurt that Donna Reed is second only to Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara in the pantheon of incredibly attractive women from classic films of decades ago.

    My favorite line from the film's wikipedia page:

    "One motion picture industry source reported to the FBI in 1947 that the movie resembled Communist propaganda in its making a banker the most despised person in the story."

    Bert and Ernie reference just now on "Cheers." This is getting spooky.

    Yeah, pretty much the dumbest line in the movie...

    "hey bitch, we just gave you 25 grand. There's no apron on my body or glass in my hand... get yer own damn wine..."

    Was far better when it would pop up late on Christmas eve on some obscure station instead of NBC getting its hooks into it and stretched it out

    One of the other bonuses of CBC... Christmas eve, like three interuptions the whole time for a minute each.... not bound by the FCC...

    Problem was, it was popping up late on Christmas Eve . . . and about 23,000 times before that in a 30-day span.

    Buy the DVD and watch it when you want.
    I refuse to be a slave to TV.
