    I loved this movie when i saw it years ago and was thrilled to see it was going to be on TCM. I remembered the last scene off the diving board from my first viewing. This movie does not disappoint; it is a sweet, lovely film about a young woman's challenging road to independence and self-esteem after her husband walks out on her. The actors are outstanding and always believable. Trish Van Devere was so real in the part, I wanted to cry with her. I liked this movie so much I am now trying to track down the short story by Rebecca Morris which was originally published in the New Yorker. I really hope that this gets released on DVD; it is truly a classic gem.

    Trish Van Devere was a fine 70's actress who never rose above the B-movie ranks. This starring vehicle for her points to everything wrong with a woman defining herself in relation to a man. She has no employable skills, no work history and is working at a lifeguard at an inner-city pool. Where she is afraid to dive off the board. Her husband, an English professor, is divorcing her. She fights the divorce in an effort to come face to face with him to reconcile. During an escapade with a group of gents at an outdoor event, she eye-flirts with a handsome looker (Monte Markham in a fine performance) who eventually disrupts the group of hanger-onners by pretending to be her husband. A smooth seducer, he takes her to his well-appointed house for some dancing and footsie. She is strongly attracted to him, but runs out at the last minute. Meanwhile, she keeps a date at an outdoor showing of King Lear with her grocer (Melvyn Douglas) and winds up crying her eyes out. A turning point occurs. She decides to make time with the smooth seducer on her own terms and beds him. Their sweet affair begins. When her lawyer tells her that her husband is living with a 19 year-old woman, she is livid. She questions her smooth guy, demanding that he rate her--in bed, in looks, and as marriage potential. He rates her very highly--as high as his WIFE. She gives him several good slaps and ends it. This is a good film. It demonstrates that what men want--women--they can get through deception, divorce, money, or other means. Women who are independent of this face a challenging life--to be one's own boss can be costly, but it can also be rewarding. She dives off the pool board at the end. Really good film.

    I'm back to 1968 on my movie catch-up, about 45-65 movies a year, close to half and half U.S. and foreign. This is #3 on my list of American movies for 1968-present that need to be released on DVD, behind only Ruby in Paradise and Conrack at #'s 1 and 2 and ahead of Give 'em Hell, Harry, The Big Fix, The Happy Ending, and Only When I Laugh at #'s 4 through 7. I suspect that George C. Scott and Melvyn Douglas would agree with me on this DVD need.

    A beautiful little movie that preceded An Unmarried Woman by just a few years. Trish Van Devere is lovely as a woman who's husband walks out on their marriage leaving her confused and shattered. She slowly tries to rebuild her life with the help of friends and a new man in her life. Deserves to be seen and a shame that it's never been released on dvd.
