Best Supporting Actress: Eileen Heckart
Young Don Baker (Edward Albert) is blind. In the San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district at the beginning of the 1970s, he makes the considerable move toward independence by moving away from his mother (Eileen Heckart) and into his own place. Incidentally, he finds himself falling for Jill (Goldie Hawn), the kooky, free spirited actress in the apartment next door. Don must then convince his mother that Jill is good for him. Leonard Gershe's adapted this film version from his own Broadway play of the same name. Heckart won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in the film.
