Colonel Smollett (Monty Woolley) struggled to place a garden glove on his right hand. Later, during the same scene in the victory garden, he wears a glove only on his left hand. At the start of the scene he was wearing two gloves. He took them both off, and then put on the right glove upside down before putting on the left glove. Next, when his hands (and soon all of him), were entirely off camera, he had enough time to remove the right glove, which he then carried in his gloved left hand.

Original prints were presented in sepia, rather than black-and-white. It has been suggested that the sepia tone was selected as it gave the film the look of an old postcard, augmenting the sentimental tone of the movie.
