Tony Randall is a lonely, middle-aged artist who shares his Manhattan brownstone with a young lady in a platonic relationship, and when she becomes pregnant by a married man, decides to raise her child as his own in this poignant comedy that evolved into the well-received series, "Love, Sidney" (1981-82). Much was made of the fact that the lead character's homosexuality was skirted entirely in this film and only briefly touched on in the series, based on a story by Marilyn Cantor Baker, daughter of comedian Eddie Cantor. An Emmy Award nomination went to Oliver Hailey for his teleplay to the film.
