"You've never seen 'Casablanca', we have nothing in common..."
24 June 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Producer Ross Hunter turns to television with this sudsy, but rich and rewarding dramatic vehicle for "Laverne & Shirley" star Cindy Williams. Williams plays put-upon Regina Malloy, whose best friend is her radio at night, growing up and finally finding independence and love with a wealthy lawyer, despite the fact the young couple are from opposite sides of town and they appear to have nothing in common. Hunter's glossy touch looked a bit out of place in cynical 1978, but it's a fine "woman's picture", with plenty of family conflict and romantic angst. Williams does yet another fine acting job--she is easily one of the most underrated actresses of the 1970s. Good show!
