Storyline

A young poet gets the brilliant idea to live in a department store, hiding by day, and courting his muse by night where it's quiet, and he can have all his needs met. But, to his surprise, he learns his brilliant idea's not exactly original; there are other residents who dodge the night watchmen, and who keep their existence secret at all costs. And one of them is a young woman who wants to leave, but is to frightened to go. And Charles finds that he wants to show her the larger world outside. Written by Kathy Li

Quotes

Roscoe Potts: I'm reminded of the tragic story of young Phipps. Long years ago, there was a velvet smoking jacket on display. Young Phipps conceived a passion for it. Naturally the thing got sold and Phipps, his reason gone, emerged and tore it from a customer. We lived for months in terror dreading an investigation. What happened to the smoking jacket, no one knows. As for young Phipps, we had to call the dark men.

I Remember
14 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two of my favorite Sondheim songs are "I Remember" and "Take Me To The World". I now have another in "If You Find Me, I'm Here". These are just three of the four songs by Stephen Sondheim in this hour-long black and white telemusical from 1966. Of course, Sondheim's songs are the main attraction and reason for resurrection in this nicely restored DVD, but just as interesting are the performance of the stars: Anthony Perkins - fighting hard to fend off his recent psychosis, thanks to Hitch; and Charmian Carr, aiming to prove that she was not just 16 going on 17. Here Carr gives a hint of what her career might have been like had she not quit the business to start a family. Also reigning supreme is Dorothy Stickney, who most will remember as the Queen with the many names in TV's first "Cinderella". Though Paul Bogart's direction is sometimes clumsy and the sound stage settings clunky, Sondheim's music soars - giving us a hint at the genius that was to come. It is no small wonder that half of this score are considered standards today.
