“Adding challenge upon challenge was screenwriter Beaty Reynolds’s Southern setting. Although the film’s budget kept the cast in Colorado, the producers were painstaking in their attention to period detail, taking weeks to find the right cars, rotary telephones or polyester outfits for Gloria’s guileless aspirations. Some scenes were reshot or cut when anachronistic details were spotted in the background.” “Such period-centricity is rare for lower-budget independent moviemaking, a branch of film for which any port in the storm – whatever its vintage – is often good enough.”

“The film (was) filled with all sorts of delightful surprises. At the top of the list is Grant’s singing. Who knew? … During Katharyn’s first song, I’m thinking, okay, this is lip-synched, so who did her singing; but as the story developed, I’m seeing that she’s singing this (and let me say that her singing itself, is worth the price of admission).”

part 1 of the article part 2 of the article This article refers to The One Who Loves You under its working title, Carolina Blue. “The story of the intrepid filmmakers of Carolina Blue is inspiring, considering they started with so little and have accomplished so much. Each member of the team has had brushes with great success only to end up discouraged when opportunities didn’t pan out. So director Katharyn Grant says they came together with the general feeling that “if the Universe isn’t going to provide that special opportunity for us to make it in our art, then let’s come together and do it ourselves.”
