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.
Earl, he's one of the smartest men I know. He's in the movie business.
Mae Doyle D'Amato: An actor?
Jerry D'Amato: No, but I bet Earl could be if he wanted to. He works at the Bijou theatre, in the projection booth.
Mae Doyle D'Amato: That's your idea of being in the movie business?
Jerry D'Amato: Running movies, ...
At the ~13 minute mark, after Mae walks past Joe in the Doyle house (Joe: "It's your life." Mae: "Yes, that's what's so funny. It's really mine."), you can see the moving shadow of one of the crew at the bottom left of the screen, on the floor.
