Trivia

During a production lunch break, screenwriter Stephen J. Friedman spotted a hippie vagrant mooching from the food line, and threw him out. That hippie, Tobe Hooper, then wandered to Austin where he filmed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), and completed it before "Lovin' Molly" was even released. See more »

27 September 2005 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Molly was probably a likable character, and I got the impression Blythe Danner was giving a good performance. But somehow this movie never registered with me. I did like the old-time music (Ralph Stanley wouldn't want me to call it bluegrass) and the big-band music used in one scene in the 1940s.

My biggest problem was that I could never remember which of the male characters were which (and apparently Molly had the same problem seeing as how she couldn't make up her mind which one to like), and even though I like Beau Bridges, I never saw any of the men as resembling him until the 1960s.

This was probably a good movie to those who like novels such as 'Wuthering Heights'.
