Marmee March: So you're going to Washington?
Elderly man: Yes, ma'am; my son is sick in the hospital there.
Marmee March: Oh, this will be an anxious Christmas for you.
Marmee March: [finding him a coat] I think this one will do; let's try this. Is it your only son?
Elderly man: No, ma'am. I had four; two were killed, one is a prisoner.
Marmee March: [deeply moved] You've done a great deal for your country, sir.
Elderly man: Oh, not a mite more than I ought, ma'am. I'd go myself if I was any use. Thank you for the overcoat.
Marmee March: Wait a minute...
Marmee March: [giving him some money] I hope you find him better.
Elderly man: Thank you, ma'am. God bless you; merry Christmas. Merry Christmas!
Marmee March: Merry Christmas!

David O. Selznick had been working for RKO Radio but had become increasingly disillusioned with the way the studio was operating. His stress at work, coupled with his anxiety over the worsening condition of his father, led him to turn to MGM who had been actively courting him for some time. He agreed to join them in February 1933 but his departure left three active projects in limbo at RKO, one of which was Little Women. George Cukor had been assigned to direct the film but he followed Selznick to MGM. However, Cukor agreed to return to RKO to finish off the film as a personal favor to Selznick.
