Heartwarming: You Can't Take It with You
  • Shortly before filming began, Lionel Barrymore lost the use of his legs to crippling arthritis. To accommodate him, the script was altered so that his character had a sprained ankle, and Barrymore did the film on crutches. That's a pretty nice thing for those script writers to do for just one man.
  • Ann Miller (Essie) once said that doing the ballet moves were extremely painful and she would often be crying in between takes. She never told anybody the reason why and Jimmy Stewart, assuming she was upset about something, he'd have boxes of candy sent to her to make her feel better. AWWWW!

    • Culminating with the kindhearted judge putting in a contribution.
