Little-seen Tale!

I don't know anyone who has seen this wonderful film from 1965 starring Norman Alden as a mentally-challenged 40 year old living with his aging parents in New York City. He gives an incredible performance in a career where he usually portrayed stooges and tough guys. Zvee Scooler (the father) is also wonderful. The trials and tribulations of living this man's life in a rough city is played out beautifully. It's not sentimental or looking for easy tears.

An 8 out of 10 for sure. I don't believe it's on DVD or video which is really a shame. I guess I saw this on late-night TV years ago, but always remembered it since I saw Norman Alden filming a commercial in L.A. 30 years ago. I wish they made more films like this nowadays. It's too much to ask for in an American film.
