    The actors are fairly effective but the script is just ok.

    Oh man. One of the most annoying movies ever made. Geraldine Page plays the kind of person most people run from; the one who asks you a lot of personal questions in the elevator. For some reason this enchants the already dull as dirt Glenn Ford. Great You two deserve each other. Torture.

    A wonderful movie about love, but unlike most Hollywood movies about love, this one is painful to watch because it deals with another side of love that most of us refuse to acknowledge. Love is not always found in the end of a movie or in life. Too often, it is a sad and melancholy process that tugs on your heart with silent cries for help. As in real life, the leading characters in this movie just can't quite figure out how to make love and life work together. This movie dedicates itself to those who have struggled and lost in the daily quest for happiness.

    Geraldine Page can, unlike most actors, demonstrate emotion and nuance through her actions. No dialog need be spoken. Page was a genius in this regard and the only actor at the time to be able to pull this movie together, which she does quite fabulously. The Henry Mancini score is also a standout.

    Geraldine Page is so sweet and vulnerable in this. Ford is his reticent self. Complete opposites that attract. The Romantic interplay is a slow burn, but worth every minute . At first glance, this pairing seems very awkward. But, In time they become sensitive and enrapture the differences they share.

    Geraldine Page will break your heart (if you have one to break) and I'm not kidding. Her subtle use of facial expression reveals her soul, and if one puts one's self in the frame of the late 50's and early 60's when "Realism" was the rage (such as Sir Laurence Olivier dipping his toes into this pool with "The Entertainer") and then adapting your own realism to the fact that films had to make money, then you can forgive the kind of brazenly mis-informed critiques of Bosley Crowther (who clearly had not a sentimental bone in his body) and you will watch Page's face register the internal gauge of the emotional state of the woman she plays. Caught in a half-fantasy half-dreadful reality, she has created a world within herself and the plot allows her to utilize her brilliance to make you fall for her. I did.

    Offbeat romance between traveling salesman Glenn Ford and quirky postmistress Geraldine Page. Not a very successful film when it came out, but this is one that deserves a second look from audiences. I'd never heard of this film before, but I'm a big Glenn Ford fan, which is why I decided watch it. Director Delbert Mann brings the same kind of rich characterization be brought to "Marty" and there is a top notch supporting cast, that includes Angela Lansbury and Richard Deacon. Then top it off with a fine Henry Mancini and you have a seriously underrated film!
