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.
"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on January 15, 1951 with Loretta Young and Joseph Cotten reprising their film roles.
