Trivia: In the film, when Margaret O'Brien is sad because she doesn't want to move, she knocks down snowmen and cries hysterically. It is rumored that in real life Margaret was told that her dog died when it really hadn't, just so she would cry. Apparently Margaret O'Brien denies this, claiming this story is not true. She explains that though she didn't feel it was easy to cry, she was able to muster it after being told that June Allyson - her MGM rival in sobbing - could cry on cue.
