At the end of the movie Paul Douglas has a cameo appearance sitting on a park bench and looks at the cat and kittens as they go past and says 'What a cat,: a litter to three wives...", a reference to his film A Letter to Three Wives (1949). See more »
Near the beginning of the movie when rhubarb is being chased by dogs across the golf course, rhubarb runs into the bushes a golf ball lying on the ground shifts positions (without being touched) one second before the dogs enter the bushes. See more »

I saw this movie when it first was released. My hometown movie theater had Saturday matinée's for kids through early teens. If you were lucky enough to go to one of these early releases you also received a picture of Rhubarb with his "pawtograph". I also acquired a large "rhubarb colored" cat. He lived up to his name well. Many a dog left our yard rather than face up Rhubarb any longer. Over the years I have recommended this movie to many people for their children to view. Those who have managed to find the movie have been well placed. I have seen this movie listed at Blockbusters. This movie will probably also be enjoyable for those of us older folks with a touch of nostalgia.
