Aw, Milly. You wouldn't want me to spend the rest of my life with a bubble-gum addict. Would you, Milly?
Sorry, I goofed!
You "goofed?" Hey, man, that's "Bop" talk! Where did you ever pick that up?
Well, why shouldn't I pick up an expression here and there? I'm not THAT old!

Joan Crawford gives a real tour-de-force as Milly, a work-obsessed, but lonely spinster who meets a handsome man, Burt (played wonderfully by Cliff Robertson), in a diner late one night. Their meeting turns into romance, and before Milly knows it, they are married in quickie Mexican nuptuals. When they return home, secrets from Burt's past began to come into the open. Before long, Burt turns into an abusive, dillusional schizophrenic. Crawford's performance is amazing (once you get past the shoulder pads and butch haircut) and Vera Miles' role as Burt's devious ex-wife is classic. Don't miss a vicious cat fight between Crawford, Miles, and Lorne Greene, in which Crawford spews at Miles, "And you, ya slut!" Director Robert Aldrich did a tremendous job of taking this melodrama, but never letting it turn into a total soap opera. Great show!
