1. I noticed her devotion to Joe. I have seen this movie and my first reaction is Joe. I recognized him from Jack Benny so I was biased. I already loved him. Petunia was speaking her heart, but when she was pulling down the laundry, I wondered if she loved him so much, why was she not standing next to him while she sang. Or, had he died when the angel appeared and he was a ghost sitting in the wheel chair? That confused me.
2. If it was a baby, I would think she would be holding the child while she sang. I don't think the song would fit for a child unless the actions were changed
