Description by OLDIES.com:
A sterling cast highlights this witty comedy-drama: Joan Crawford, Fredric March, Ruth Hussey, Nigel Bruce, John Carroll and a pre-stardom Rita Hayworth. For Crawford, Susan and God (headlined on Broadway by the formidable Gertrude Lawrence) was her chance to play a more nuanced part than her typical shopgirl-makes-good characters. As she famously declared to studio brass in her campaign to win the role of Susan, "I'd play Wally Beery's grandmother if it's a good part." It is!
- The film's title is from a line in ROMEO AND JULIET.
- The role of Susan was played by Gertrude Lawrence on the stage.
- Norma Shearer turned down the lead role, fearing that playing a character with a teenage daughter would typecast her as middle-aged.
