Did You Know?
George Cukor turned down MGM's offer to direct the film because the references to Brick's homosexuality had been removed.
After Brick tries to drive away and gets stuck, Maggie goes out to him and helps him into the house through the pouring rain. Her hair is soaking wet, but the next time we see her, it's perfectly dry and styled.
