Paula MacFadden knows: in romance, actors all follow the same stage instruction: Exit. Without warning, her actor boyfriend split today for a movie role and sublet their manhattan apartment. The new tenant's name: Elliot Garfield. Profession: Actor.
Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason deliver comedy, zingy repartee and bitter-to-best romance in 'The Goodbye Girl', a lustrous charmer featuring Dreyfuss' Academy AwardÆ winning Best Actor performance. Neil Simon's screenplay deftly combines battle-of-the-sexes appeal with an off-Broadway subplot whose scenes "are the funniest since Mel Brooks staged 'Springtime for Hitler' [in 'The Producers']" (Roger Ebert, 'Chicago Sun-Times'). You'll laugh, cry and cheer. Just say hello to this magical movie.
