Although opening credits and advertising material refer to the film as being filmed in VistaVision, it was, in fact, photographed in the standard 1.37:1 spherical aspect ratio, but with allowance for cropping on the top and bottom of the frame, as was the custom in the transitional years from standard to wide screen projection.

The story takes place in three separate eras, 1941, 1946, and 1954, but all of Jane Wyman's hair styles and clothes, as well as those of the other women in the cast, are strictly, and severely 1954. See more »
Lucy Gallant stars Jane Wyman and Charlton Heston have a great rapport in this wonderful movie. I have been trying to buy the VHS for 20 years. Is this web site saying the title is changed to Oil Town in 2005? thats very strange...i keep thinking that Jane Wyman has blocked releasing it. Perhaps it will be released on her passing. What a fun and well written movie!!! I cant wait to see it again...its NEVER on TV or cable... what a waste...check it out everyone, its a winner. Jane plays a jilted bride with her designer clothes for the honeymoon . Her train to New York is stopped in Texas with motor problems and she gets her luggage off, and finds that the women around the station are dying to buy good clothes, and she starts selling them right there, and thus begins a very successful department store very like Neiman Marcus. Charlton Heston falls in love with Jane, and what sparks from this as in Bogie and Bacal! They should have made more movies together, great performances all around. see it.
