Interesting Fact: The original ending to the film was changed by the request of the PCA censorship. Irene Dunne was to crash into a supply depot and end up with Spencer Tracy in heaven. They felt that the scene had too much of an emphasis on suicide and it was changed to what it is today.
My Mother's Favorite Scene: Her favorite scene is when Tracy is speaking with Dunne in the sky as she flies the bombing drop. It has such power and truth to it.
Pete: "That's my girl, and that's my boy."
Pete is a pilot who has the girl of his dreams, Dorinda. When he is killed in a plane crash, he becomes her guardian angel. Soon he notices a new love interest entering her life. With all the power he has he tries to keep them apart. Soon she feels conflicts in her heart for her deceased love. As she battles back and forth she makes a daring move to protect the new guy and fly his bombing raid.
This is her favorite film for two reasons. First, the cast is amazing and the acting is superb. The second reason is it's connection with heaven and the after life. Hollywood always had a consistent illustration of what it was like after death in the early years. Each scene that they depict these moments in always brought a warm feeling of peace. That is why she loves this film so much.
