The working title of this film was Our Love. The sequence in which "Julie" and "Bill" meet occurs before the start of the onscreen credits. The credits are then shown over a montage depicting the couple's happy married life. The film's title song is played under the opening credit/montage sequence. According to Twentieth Century-Fox publicity materials contained in the film's production file at the AMPAS Library, some scenes were filmed at the Lick Observatory at Mount Hamilton, CA; at the Naval Air Station at Sunnyvale, CA, and at the Vista Del March Orphanage at Sequoia Point, CA. Twentieth Century-Fox first produced Nelia Gardner White's story in 1946 as Sentimental Journey, starring John Payne and Maureen O'Hara and directed by Walter Lang (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50). On October 24, 1984, CBS broadcast a televised version titled Sentimental Journey, starring Jaclyn Smith and David Dukes and directed by James Goldstone.
