Storyline

Tom Sullivan is in many ways a typical student attending a Boston area college, he, showing his immaturity, partaking in, often leading, mainly harmless student hijinks with his pipe smoking friend, Will Sly. He funnels many of his energies into his music as a singer/pianist. Tom also happens to be blind, which he's been since a newborn due to being provided too much oxygen while in an incubator. Tom is independently minded, and wants to be treated just like any sighted person. Like most men his age, he is also in the pursuit of the opposite sex, in the process of which he finds that he falls in love easily. Through all these activities, Tom is affected by real life including the temporariness of college life, some not being able to get over their own prejudices of being sighted in their dealings with him, and coming to the realization that there are some things more difficult to do in life when one is blind.

Quotes

Will Sly: [walks into Tom's room, where the light is off] Sullivan, you pervert, it's pitch black in here.
[he switches on the light]
Tom Sullivan: I got news for you, Sly. It's still pitch black in here.
Will Sly: It's not nice to make fun of sighted people. I'm liable to go through your closet and mix all your solids and checks, and then where would you be? You'd be a walking billboard for bad taste, that's where you'd be!

I saw this movie ages ago and I would love to see it again to find out if it was as good as I truly remember. I loved the scene with the socks (trying not to spoil) and I think I fell in love with Shari Bellafonte when I saw this. This is the last movie that Marc singer did before Beastmaster that I saw which is the last movie of his I liked.

I am on board for getting this released on DVD. If anyone has an idea how let me know. thanks
