Well acted but not exactly easy to believe....
27 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Peggy Ann Garner (who gained fame as a child actress in the brilliant film "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn") stars as Miranda. Miranda is a sheltered young lady whose parents seem very, very concerned with politics and fitting in with high society in her town. But, she's also very lonely and a bit awkward.

Charles Bronson stars as Jerry. Jerry is MUCH more socially inept than Miranda and has an extremely poor image of himself. He doesn't seem especially bright, had a juvenile record and has a hard time keeping down a job. And, like Miranda he's lonely.

When the two meet, by chance, Jerry is taken by Miranda and he makes some very clumsy advances towards her. In fact, he's so socially awkward that he comes off as creepy--and it's not at all surprising that Miranda is afraid of him. Heck, most women would have assumed that he was a sex offender or serial killer...but he isn't.

After this brief and VERY unsuccessful meeting, Jerry finds Miranda's library card and wants to return it to her. Naturally, she is NOT fond of the idea of meeting him again and just tells him to drop it in the mail. But, being awkward and lonely, he just shows up at her home unannounced. She is once again a bit scared of him but is also taken by how cold and hungry he looks so she invites him in to the house. Soon, they actually begin to create an awkward friendship. Where does this all lead? See the show for yourself (available at archive.org).

The story never seemed especially plausible. The two just seemed too different and Miranda fell for Jerry too easily (most women would have just called the cops on him). But, the two actors did a really nice job--so much that I do recommend you give it a try.
