"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 5, 1948 with Loretta Young and Joseph Cotten reprising their film roles.
First cinema film of James Arness.
In The Farmer's Daughter, Katrin Holstrom (Loretta Young) reads the story of the townsfolk who place their beloved doctor's office shingle as a monument on his tomb: "Dr. Sorensen: Upstairs". Essentially the same scene occurs in Dreaming Out Loud where Lum and Abner place the "Dr. Walter Barnes: Office Upstairs" shingle on the good doctor's tomb.
On a cold day, Katrin prepares a drink called glogg for Glenn. Glogg is usually made from claret, aquavit, sugar, cloves, cardamom, orange peel, and raisins. It is ignited before being served.
The screen rights were initially bought by David O. Selznick. He intended to make it a vehicle for Ingrid Bergman. She declined the role, however. He tried to cast either Dorothy McGuire or Sonja Henie, but eventually sold the rights to RKO Radio Pictures.
