Master of Broadway comedy Neil Simon adapted his hit play about a conservative young lawyer and his off-the-wall bride for this warm film classic. Robert Redford is Mister Straight. Jane Fonda is his new wife, who dedicates her life to the pursuit of fun. As the ecstasy of the honeymoon gives way to the reality of setting up housekeeping in a five-flight walk-up, the harmony of marriage turns to comical discord. The mother-in-law complains meekly. The middle-aged lothario upstairs flirts. Joy turns to anguish. There is little doubt that the young people will kiss and make up by the end of the picture, just as there's little doubt that the mother and the neighbor will find each other. Fonda and Redford make a wonderfully successful comedy team

A child is waiting by John Cassavetes( Visual )

9 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film both documents and dramatises the problems faced by those who care for intellectually handicapped children. Garland brings the emotionalism of her playing to the role of a teacher who develops too close an attachment to one of the children in the school which brings her into conflict with the psychologist in charge (Lancaster). While the lead child role is played by a professional actor (Ritchey) most of the other children in the film were actual patients of Pacific State Hospital, Pomona, California. Cassavetes' preference for quasi-documentary observation appears to have come into conflict with Kramer's penchant for didacticism, although the completed film retains a good deal of the former approach
