Did you know that the screenplay for this film was written by Frances Goodrich and her husband Albert Hackett. She was born in Belleville, N.J. and moved at an early age to Nutley, N.J. The two were top screenwriters from the 1930s to the 1950s when they won the Pulitzer Prize for their play The Diary of Anne Frank.
And the pair
worked on Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life" but it wasn't a
pleasant experience for even the seasoned Hollywood screenwriters.
