When Frank gives in and decides to take Breezy to the Pacific Ocean so she can see it for the first time, it is early morning. Upon arrival at the ocean the sun is clearly behind the ocean casting shadows into the beach not away from it, thus in reality the scene was shot at sunset not sunrise. See more »
I like being alone.
Ugh. I don't. I dig people too much to be without them. But then, that's the trouble today; people just don't like each other any more.

Another fine 70s adult character drama with typically rich details, compelling characterization and seemingly aimless pacing representative of that great and celebrated era in American movies.
Directed with inspired understatement by Clint Eastwood early in his film-making career and with a well crafted script it's an excellent spin on the older man/young girl conflict set in photogenic LA.
Kay Lenz so winning and charming as the free spirited idealistic temptress. With his fabulously craggy face and usual smoky boozy sincere caustic growl William Holden created another memorable portrait of aging dispirited masculinity.
If I had seen it last year I would have certainly been shrieking it's virtues during my rant against Lost in Translation.
