  • Trivia

    • As the crowd gathers for Alvira's show, we see Ike enter the theater (his store) and talk to Grandpa, who's taking tickets near the door. In the next shot, we see Olivia and John talking, sitting on the front bench of the audience. Ike's head is visible in the row behind Olivia; he's turned and speaking to a Baldwin sister. The next shot is a wide shot of the audience, and it shows Ike just arriving, walking in front of Olivia and John and around to sit in that second row by the Baldwins.

  • Quotes

    • Opening Narration: When I was growing up on Walton's Mountain I used to dream of all the faraway places I would one day visit. New York City captured my imagination most completely because it was a Mecca for young aspiring artists and writers. I wasn't to stray that far from home for several years, but I was due for a special preview. One day, without any warning, a New York hurricane hit our peaceful community.

    • Closing Narration: Alvira Drummond was to entertain audiences again on the New York stage, but I doubt if she ever found an audience as appreciative as that group in Ike Godsey's store on Walton's Mountain.
