The Goodbye Girl (1977)

Paula McFadden (Marsha Mason) and her daughter Lucy (Quinn Cummings) come home to find that her boyfriend has left for an out of town job with no warning. This has happened before. The second surprise comes in the form of another actor, Elliot Garfield (Richard Dreyfuss) who has sublet the apartment from her boyfriend (who did not mention the pair of females who would be in residence). After some negotiation the two decide to share the apartment even though she has vowed to stay away from actors.

Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help. Any donations are much appreciated to keep otsoNY online.
