Movie Info

Having tried and failed to produce the David Westheimer novel and play My Sweet Charlie as a theatrical film, Richard Levinson and William Link had to be content with making the property as a TV movie-which turned out to be one of the very best of its kind. Al Freeman, Jr. plays Charlie, a black New York lawyer falsely accused of a crime in a rural Texas town. Escaping from his tormentors, Charlie takes refuge in a boarded-up farmhouse. Here he meets another fugitive: unmarried, pregnant Marlene

Audience Reviews for My Sweet Charlie

A bit of social enlightenment from the age of that same, Patty Duke and Al Freeman Jr. give warm performances that alleviate the obvious Civil Rights message intended in this petite dance of opposites. Maybe its enough to say that I sought this piece out some odd 44 years after first seeing its premiere on television all those years ago, that I still remembered it.

Acclaimed TV drama that was revolutionary for it's time. The performances are beautifully realized, this and Me, Natalie are the films that saved Patty Duke's career after Valley of the Dolls nearly ended it. Bittersweet story is very moving and might not even be able to be made in these politically correct times.
