* DawsonCasting: 26-year-old Creator/LillianGish playing 15-year-old Lucy, [[OlderThanTheyLook though it works for her rather well]]. In the original short story, Lucy is 12, but Griffiths knew that only a child actor could pull off the role of a 12-year-old, and didn't want to traumatise a kid by making her act the part of the badly mistreated Lucy.
