Paula McFadden knows: in romance, actors all follow the same stage instruction: Exit. Without warning, her actor boyfriend split today for a movie role and sublet their Manhattan apartment. The new tenant's name: Elliot Garfield. Profession: actor.
Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason deliver comedy, zingy repartee and bitter-to-best romance in The Goodbye Girl, a lustrous charmer featuring Dreyfuss' Academy Award-winning Best Actor performance. Neil Simon's screenplay deftly combines battle-of-the-sexes appeal with an off-Broadway subplot whose scenes "are the funniest since Mel Brooks staged Springtime for Hitler [in The Producers]" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). You'll laugh, cry and cheer. Just say hello to this magical movie.
