When his path crosses Evie's, she wonders if this is finally the man for her, while her ways just seem to annoy him. At least to start with. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

A movie lovers' movie
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie alone in our darkening family room on a summer evening at the age of 14.It was the first Geraldine Page performance I'd ever seen and it hooked me.I fell in love with her,with Glenn Ford,with New York City,with apartments over cafés,with....well,I fell in love.This movie rings with romantic notions and truths,sympathetic characters,and (for viewers of a certain age or awareness) an abundance of familiar faces.Also the theme song "Dear Heart" is one of Henry Mancini's loveliest and most evocative both melodically and lyrically.Actually,in my early teens I spent a lot of summer evenings watching television alone in our darkening family room,a little lonely yet hoping not to be disturbed.Now,at age 51,I consider myself lucky that during those somewhat lonely and impressionable times I had the opportunity to be exposed to this movie and so many others of it's quality.I like it!
