As stated in the end credits, the little girl Sullivan saved from drowning was not his girlfriend's little sister, as portrayed in the film, but actually his own daughter. See more »

It's the IRS. They'd like to know when they can expect payment.

I believe I saw this movie in 1983 when I was 15. I loved it. I fell in love with every character (especially Shari Belafonte), and their development within the movie. I saw an earlier comment that called this a "feel good" movie. Well, maybe. I don't think I felt particularly good at the end, but I did feel as though I had seen one of the best movies ever. In fact, I don't think I realized that Tom Sullivan was blind until the very end! I taped this movie from HBO once about 1995 but my friend taped a porno over it. Remember to remove those tabs! I feel empty without it. If there is a movement somewhere to get this movie on DVD I would surely like to join it. I can't believe it is not already. But considering the crap that is produced and then out on DVD, I am not surprised. I don't think that most of those in charge of releasing DVD would notice a gem of a movie if they saw it.A++++++
