Storyline

Marcus (Michael Brandon), a nice, rich, Jewish boy from New York City, meets and falls in love with Jennifer (Tippy Walker), a girl from Oyster Bay, while they are both in Venice.

Noel Black ("Pretty Poison") directed the film, and Erich Segal ("Love Story") wrote it. Robert De Niro has a small role as a gypsy cab driver. Written by alfiehitchie

Excellent and interesting film...somehow forgotten
1 February 2016 | by qormiSee all my reviews

Tippy Walker and Michael Brandon were very convincing as young trust fund loafers who meet and fall in love. Jennifer is irresistible and she knows it, leading Marcus on and always leaving him. But he's attracted to her and keeps coming back. Anyone who was young in 1971 knows that girls like Jennifer really did exist...beautiful and teasing but noncommittal. Secrets .....secrets that forced them to live a clandestine life filled with sadness, wanting to break free, but ultimately chained to addiction.Marcus is so in love and wants everything to work out, but Jennifer is a user. Just a sad and powerful statement of he rampant drug culture that destroyed so many young lives back then.Sadly, Tippy Walker bowed out of acting after this film...a shame, because she turned out a powerful performance here. Actors have won Oscars for less.
