Rating: 4/5 -- Watch this one if you've ever wondered how Goldie Hawn became a star.
Jul 27, 2002
Rating: C+ -- Poorly directed, the movie betrays its theatrical origins, but the acting of the two women, Goldie Hawn as the free spirit and Eileen Heckart as the overly protective mother, fighting over the love of a blind youngster, is good. Full Review
Jul 18, 2009
Hawn, funny and touching, is a delight throughout and Heckart gets a film role that enables her to display versatility. Full Review
Aug 8, 2008
Rating: 3/4 -- An interesting film about love, blindness and the inherent bias in both. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Although the emotional conflicts are a bit too neatly settled at the story's conclusion, Albert, Hawn, and Heckart make it all seem believable. Full Review

A perfect example of schmaltz so cunningly and attractively created that it will move even the stoniest soul. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
