Same Time, Next Year (1978)
one and only one ending
Spoilers are here in that I'm talking about the last scene of the movie.
A few posters seem to be upset about a Hollywood ending tacked on the movie. This is completely false.
There IS a scene of Ellen Burstyn (Doris) on the bed, crying... it is after Alan Alda (George) tells her he cannot see her anymore. He then rushes back in and agrees to keep seeing her for as long as they can.
There was never an "original ending" of the movie with her just crying because he supposedly had died.
This film is based on the stage play of the same name (which Burstyn starred in and won a Tony for), and the play ends EXACTLY the same as the movie (a few minor changes of dialogue). George tells Doris he cannot see her, he exits... then re-enters. If it seems Hollywood, well, that's how Bernard Slade imagined it for the stage, and he did not change it for the screen.
