It's supposed to be 1944, but the first exterior view of the Astor Hotel shows two adjacent film theatres, the Astor and the Capitol, playing We Were Strangers and Scene of the Crime, both of which premiered in New York City in July 1949. A few minutes later, another view shows the Astor playing Melody Time, and the Criterion across the street playing Easter Parade, both of which premiered in June 1948. See more »

Why do they call you Bratsie?
Because I'm a spoiled brat, why else? Why are you called Ann?

Claudette Colbert is far and away one of the BEST actresses that ever appeared on screen, small or big. She did drama and comedy with equal incredible talent. Her roles in wartime were some of her best... "Since You Went Away", "So Proudly We Hail", just to name two. Her Oscar winner, "It Happened One Night", while a very good performance in a good movie, is not her best. She should have gotten more Oscars. Her turn in "The Egg and I" is hilarious, and yet, totally believable. I miss going to the movies because there aren't performers like Claudette Colbert. There is only one in this day and age that even approaches the talent of Claudette Colbert and that is Sally Field. Consider the similarities!
