Storyline

Dr. Matt Younger and his daughter arrive for a month-long visit to London for dirt-bike racing and unexpectedly, a new romance for the widowed Dr. Younger. His new love interest is the beautiful and playful Catherine who seems to enjoy eluding Dr. Younger as much as she enjoys eluding the mysterious men who are following her. Their romance develops gradually as does the viewers' understanding of what is going on with this charming woman and the complications she brings with her. Written by Greg Bruno <burlynerd@usa.net>

cherished memories
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recall this movie when it was originally released in 1973. I was a young child,and it was a welcomed relief from the "Blaxploitation" films of the era. This movie has been one of my favorites since I first saw it. It has periodically been shown on network t.v.through the years, so I have been able to see it from time to time prior to the release of the VHS tape. This is Sidney Poitier doing what he does best. Charming, intelligent and in a romantic lead. Ester Anderson was also very beautiful and quite delightful in her role. It is a shame that her life in the cinema was so short-lived. Yvette Curtis was also charming, and went on to her next memorable role in Claudine. It would be wonderful to know where these two actresses are now!
