The following commercial aired during the April 19th, 1965 broadcast of Jean Shepherd's radio program on WOR: "Unusual news about an unusual, new motion picture. It's called, "Nobody Waved Good-Bye," and here at last is a real, down-to-earth, dramatic film that shows what teenagers feel and never tell; what parents see and never understand. It's a story of what's happening all over America. The story of privileged children, their desperate parents, and the stone wall between them. What's happening on the screen is happening in Derry End (sp?), in Great Neck, in the Bronx. It's what's turning ten millions of homes into battlegrounds. Today's children seem to be growing up so fast, marrying fast, and falling apart fast. Their confused parents ask, "Why?" and confused teenagers ask, "Why not?" The name of this powerful picture is "Nobody Waved Good-Bye," and no parent, no teenager, nobody should miss it. See "Nobody Waved Good-Bye" plus "Lonely Boy" starting Wednesday at Loew's Capitol and Murray Hill theaters."
