Storyline

A young couple, Mary and John, awaiting a baby is in search for a house when they decide to buy that lovely old villa they found by coincidence.

Mary begins to wonder about Myron's odd behaviour, but everybody thinks Mary's fears are due to her being pregnant. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Goofs

In researching Myron's past, Mary comes across a 1943 newspaper article which lists his father as being a lieutenant in the USAF. This is over 4 years before there was an independent Air Force, so it would still have been listed as the Army Air Corps, or the USAAF (Army Air Force) See more »

Great Acting by Rod Steiger!
5 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have always been a great fan of Rod Steiger and one Summer day in 1968 in the theatrical district of NYC, I watched Rod having makeup put on his face and his hair combed while he was filming,"No Way to Treat A Lady". In this picture, Rod Steiger,(Myron), plays a semi-retired doctor who lives next door to a young couple who wanted to buy his old boyhood family homestead. Myron becomes very attracted to Linda Kozlowski,(Mary), Almost An Angel",'90, who looks just like his mother whom he adored and worshiped. Ron Lea, (John),"Summer With the Ghosts",'03, is Marys husband and is having a hard time adjusting to his new work position and notices that his wife is getting very upset with the neighbor Myron, who wants to be her physician for her expectant boy child. There is lots of suspense and you begin to see that someone in the picture wanted desperately to become an ONLY CHILD!
