Trivia

During the first half of 1972, Sondra Locke went over to Universal on the recommendation of screenwriter Jo Heims and met Clint Eastwood for the first time. She didn't actually audition for the part of Breezy. They just chatted and the meeting seemed to have no impact on Clint. Born in 1944, Locke was much too old for a character that needed to be as youthful as possible to emphasize the May-September disparity. She of course was disappointed not to get the role. Three years later, Locke's agent called her and said Eastwood wanted to know if she'd come in for a meeting on The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976). The rest, as they say, is history. See more »

Goofs

When Frank gives in and decides to take Breezy to the Pacific Ocean so she can see it for the first time, it is early morning. Upon arrival at the ocean the sun is clearly behind the ocean casting shadows into the beach not away from it, thus in reality the scene was shot at sunset not sunrise. See more »

Quotes

Frank Harmon: It's your life.
Breezy: What happened, Frankie?
Frank Harmon: Nothing happened.
Breezy: Then why are you throwing us away?
Frank Harmon: Breezy, there's no us. There never could be. Did you really think we could happen into something?
Breezy: I thought we already had happened.
Frank Harmon: All we add up to is a dirty joke. You're the zing in my life, and I'm the best score you probably ever made. That's all.
Breezy: You don't believe that.
Frank Harmon: Okay! I can't cope with it! Let it go at that. I cannot cope with any of it!

What an underrated movie !
3 February 2002 | by Topher-26See all my reviews

I can't believe this movie was only graded 5.6/10 (as of today) !! Even though this will obviously remind you of Kubrick's "Lolita" (1962), Clint Eastwood makes an incredibly promising debut as a director. His style is already intact. The development is simple and yet subtle, the acting is great and the lead cast is absolutely adequate. I was really pleasantly surprised and I deeply regret not taping it given its unavailability for sale. Unfortunately, this is yet another gem lost in a sea of mediocrity.
