In addition to being pregnant with her first biological child, June Allyson also adopted her first child whilst the film was in production. When Allyson learned that her daughter, Pamela Powell, had arrived for the first time at her home, she immediately left the set without asking permission, and raced home to hold her daughter. She returned later that day and told the rest of the cast and crew the joyous news. See more »
The first time we see Jo pick up a pen to write, she uses her left hand, but when she is signing her name to the novel "My Beth", she uses her right. See more »
This is THE best version I have ever seen, including the latest remake w/winona ryder. The Allyson/1949 version captures the time, mood and setting perfectly and comfortably - Whereas the 90's version was too "90's". There was a lot more sarcasm, too much of "we women being held back" dialogue and overall coarseness. The June Allyson version, in my opinion, is still the one for me.
