Paul Benedict in The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye Girl

1977 PG

Ex-Broadway hoofer Paula (Marsha Mason) lives with her daughter in the New York flat of her most recent lost love -- who has sublet the place. Enter brash actor and sublessee Elliot (Richard Dreyfuss, in an Oscar-winning performance), who doesn't have the heart to oust mother and child. A mismatch from the get-go, Paula and Elliot are mutually contemptuous. But that changes when his vulnerability shows after a wretched theatrical debut.
