Storyline

Robert, a general contractor, is visiting his ailing wife in a nursing home. When it's time for him to leave, he has problems getting a taxi home, because of an intense snow storm. Catherine, one of the doctors, offers him a ride. However, because of the snow, their car gets stuck, requiring them to overnight in an empty cabin nearby. They talk and bond, but afterwards seem to have difficulty beginning a relationship. The third, and last, professional collaboration between long-time friends James Garner and Julie Andrews. Written by Paul Hunter aka "Bob the Moo" / revision by TrivWhiz

Trivia

The last movie of Julie Andrews and James Garner together. See more »

Goofs

The road down which James Garner and Julie Andrews ride on the tractor obviously has been plowed, even though Garner says that it hasn't been. Also, the tractor was free of snow; and in that blizzard, it should have been half-covered when they found it. The amount of snow on the ground is the ultimate unreality, as it would have taken hours for that much snow to have fallen and to drift that much. See more »

Quotes

[Catherine and Robert have just got on the tractor]
Catherine: Can't you go faster? I could walk faster!
Robert: Okay, then get off!
