Random Harvest opened as the ‘42 Christmas show. You can see the holiday garlands have been taken down. The film was such a success it played until March of ‘43 Even though it is past the holiday season there is still a long line and crowds outside the Hall. The director Mervyn LeRoy in his autobio claims the Music Hall manager told him it could have played for many more weeks. But the Music Hall had other films lined up waiting to get in and MGM probably wanted to get it into the nabes. It could have played as the Easter Show as well. Coleman and Garson are one of the most attractive couples to appear in a movie.
The film that followed was a Goldwyn Hope/Lamour comedy. In his autobio I think he says Cancel My Reservation was the only one of his films to play at the Hall. I guess he forgot about this one.
