Mae Doyle comes back to her hometown a cynical woman. Her brother Joe fears that his love, fish cannery worker Peggy, may wind up like Mae. Mae marries Jerry and has a baby; she is happy but restless, drawn to Jerry's friend Earl.
The Southern Pacific steam locomotive #2353 that passes Mae at the beginning of the film as she goes home from the cafe is now on display at the Pacific Southern Railway Museum east of San Diego, California.
I'm real glad you came back home Mae.
Mae Doyle D'Amato: Why?
Jerry D'Amato: I like you - you know that.
Mae Doyle D'Amato: You don't know anything about me. What kind of an animal am I? Do I have fangs? Do I purr? What jungle am I from? You don't know a thing about me.
When Earl the projectionist is rewinding the recently run roll of film (around 10 minute mark), he uses a manual crank re-winder from reel to reel. One of the reels is wrong because he is putting the outer film side on the inside of the new reel.
