  • This was the first and only Hallmark Hall of Fame movie since always airing them on Sundays on a regular basis to air it on a Wednesday instead of a Sunday, due to CBS airing the Super Bowl XXXVIII on Sunday, February 1.
  • This is also the second Hallmark Hall of Fame movie in which Angela Lansbury stars in, the first being The Shell Seekers.
