Marcus (Michael Brandon), a nice, rich, Jewish boy from New York, meets and falls in love with Jennifer (Tippy Walker), a girl from Oyster Bay, while they are both in Venice. He follows her to her home on Long Island and ultimately to the top of a high-rise on the New Jersey Palisades, where begins a romantic reminiscence in extended flashbacks, that ultimately leads to tragedy. Noel Black ("Pretty Poison") directed the film, and Erich Segal ("Love Story") wrote it. Robert De Niro has a small role as a gypsy cab driver. Written by

The original cut delivered to United Artists was longer, featuring Kim Hunter
in the role of Jennifer's mother. This cut was ruled too arty--disastrous in the eyes of studio barons--so the film was re-cut to 90 minutes. Hunter's role was eliminated. See more
