Sheila Levine is a Jewish-American princess and a native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. An innovative, bright, but painfully introverted individual, she comes to New York City with her mother and father to take an apartment with a nightclub-hopping roommate. Persuaded to go to a nightclub one night, she meets a doctor named Sam Stoneman who is on the hunt for a one-night stand. Sheila develops an intense attraction towards Sam who seemingly is attracted to Sheila's desperately flirtatious roommate. She returns to Harrisburg for a time and comes back to win the heart of Sam only to discover that he has been conned into an engagement with her ex-roommate. Meanwhile, stalwart Sheila quickly climbs the ladder at her job as a "office-singer/typist" for a record company.Written by

For its very rare early 80's broadcast showings, 13 minutes were added onto the film's running time, boosting it to almost 127 minutes. Added are more scenes involving Sheila's "typing/singing" job. See more »
Loved it! I thought it was a comedy, romance, sad and happy. Haven't we all been there? I presume it was low budget, but it certainly got the point across. As one reviewer on this site put it "it sticks in your head". So true to life for the 1970s. I loved this movie. I could relate to how Sheila felt. I really enjoyed the plot. The mother was wonderfully casted. I gave it 10 stars. It's certainly worth watching for those romantics at heart like me.
