Breezy (Kay Lenz) is a teen-aged hippy with a big heart. After taking a ride with a man who only wants her for sex, Breezy manages to escape. She runs to hide on a secluded property where stands the home of a middle-aged divorced man, Frank Harmon (William Holden). Frank reluctantly takes Breezy in only to fall, unexpectedly, in love with her.Written by
In the scene when Frankie and Breezy are walking down the boardwalk and pass Director Clint Eastwood, he is standing to the left of the post. As they continue walking, they pass a couple at the next post. In the next camera angle high above, Director Clint Eastwood is still leaning over the railing, but now he is to the right of the post, and the couple just passed by, are no longer even on the boardwalk.

The late William Holden provides further proof of his considerable acting talent in this sleeper film from 1973. Kay Lenz and the supporting cast members are also enjoyable. This is a refreshingly low-key romantic drama and doesn't have much comic relief, but it's still a good movie. It is also a change from director Clint Eastwood's more violent films. I don't remember hearing any objectionable four-letter words and I don't remember any violence. The lush scenery is an appropriate backdrop for the main characters' unlikely love affair. I should mention that there is nudity in the film. Kay Lenz appears topless several times. If you don't like brief nudity (which occurs several times), you may want to pass on this film.
